It didn’t take long for Margaret Olley’s Still Life With Fruit and Flowers to find a buyer.
Art dealers Smith & Singer sent a note to those well-heeled members of its mailing list just after 10am on Thursday offering the painting for private sale. By 11.30am it had found a new home.
The buyer negotiated an undisclosed price understood to be just shy of $100,000, not a record for an Olley, but serious money.
