One of Arthur Boyd's most romantic brides is coming out of hiding for Sotheby's Australian art sale in Sydney on November 24. Boyd gave the painting to his brother-in-law, the painter John Perceval, in the late 1950s. It has passed through other private collections since then, but it has never been seen at auction.
