- For car buffs there is a black 1994 Porsche 911 speedster – one of only six in Australia.
Following a health scare, art dealer Barry Pang has sold his luxury Toorak home “Belle-View” at 1 Grong Grong Court and with wife Anne is planning to travel overseas for the next few months. Accordingly he has asked Phillip Caldwell to auction much of his art collection and other collectibles on site from 11am Sunday. Highlight of the sale will be 13 works by Sidney Nolan – one of the largest collections of his oil paintings and original works ever assembled outside the Desert series in 2004 at Ian Potter Conservatorium.
The sale also includes Arthur Boyd’s painting of his father Merric in the Shoalhaven style and Charles Blackman’s The Football Crowd – painted at 20 and believed to be his first work. Other artists to feature include David Boyd, Tim Maguire, John Perceval, Fred McCubbin, Pro Hart, Robert Dickerson, Norman Lindsay and J.A. Turner.
Additional auction highlights include several quality pieces of Royal Worcester by well-known artists such as Harry Davis, Charles Baldwin and John Stinton, and a rare collection of the most intricate 18th and 19th century collection of Satsuma, bronzes and signed Chinese ivory. Stunning furniture includes several 18th century commodes, exotic bureau plats, salon pieces, vitrines and bergeres. A collection of antique clocks including a 19th century French tortoiseshell ormolu mounted salon timepiece should whet buyers’ appetites. Sporting memorabilia features signed Mohammed Ali boxing gloves, Don Bradman bat, Michael Jordan shirt and Michael Schumacher cap. For car buffs, there is a black 1994 Porsche 911 speedster – one of only six in Australia. Viewing 10-6pm Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am-11am.
