27.02.22, Art to Date | Select

By February 9, 2022Uncategorized

Webb’s is delighted to announce our first pair of art catalogues of 2022, Art to Date and Select, are now online.


Art to Date offers a wonderful varied selection of works that span a variety of eras, mediums and subject matter. A range of New Zealand and international artists feature, including a beautiful suite of works from the 1960s and 1970s by Carl Sydow and a group of very contemporary objects by ceramicist Laurie Steer. Other highlights include works by Karl Maughan, Bill Hammond, Pat Hanly, Gretchen Albrecht, Peter Siddell and Don Binney.

Alongside Art to Date we also present the third iteration of Select. Our team of specialists have enjoyed scouring the consignments for Art to Date to choose works that stand out and offer interesting pairings. These “staff picks” are a fantastic overview of artistic practice and a dynamic offering. Highlights include works by Imogen Taylor, Richard (Dick) Lyne, Vera Cummings, Allen Maddox, Séraphine Pick, Max Gimblett, and more.

The catalogue will be previewed at our Mount Eden gallery on Tuesday 22 February, with the auctions taking place on Sunday 27 February.

If you have any questions about the works in either catalogue, or would like to request a condition report, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our specialist team. We would love to hear from you.
