Well, that truly rang home with the results of the Luczo Family Collection coming out of Deutscher and Hackett recently.
I mentioned when I previewed the collection mid-October, that there is always good buying if the example of the artist’s work is at its best, this is exactly the case for a many of the works in this collection.
I must admit, I was concerned with some of the estimates from the auction house on a few of the pieces, I feel they didn’t reflect the quality of the works at hand.
One of the great outcomes, I feel, is that this is just what the Aboriginal Market needed, a good kick to really allow momentum to build towards achieving a great result and it achieved just that.
Below are some of the standouts..
