Sotheby’s Australia’s April 28 art auction comprises 111 works and has a total estimate of $9.08 million to $12.3 million, making it one of the most significant sales of art to have ever been held in Australia. The auction includes The David Clarke AO Collection of Australian Art + Important Australian Art which is one of the most significant private collections of Australian art assembled in recent decades. The sale will be conducted by Lord Mark Poltimore, Deputy Chairman of Sotheby’s Europe, who has strong ties with Australia from his time as the Chairman of Christies in Australia from 1998-2000.
