13.12.21, Works of Art

By December 7, 2021Uncategorized

Webb’s final Works of Art catalogue for 2021 is now online. With works by a star-studded line up of artists, including Séraphine Pick, Gordon Walters, Pat Hanly, Robin White and a host of others, it is a fitting final act to a blockbuster year.

The star of the show is Don Binney’s monumental painting Mana IslandAt 2.5 x 3.5 metres, it is the largest work Binney ever created. Painted in his signature style, the work shows the iconic Mana Island, Porirua Harbour and the hills of Titahi Bay, with distant peaks of the South Island in the background.

Another stunning highlight is Louise Henderson’s Arab Portrait No.8. This 1959 oil painting was created on the back of Henderson’s extensive travels in the Middle East, and demonstrates the polished mastery of modernist painting that she is so well known for.

An exquisite suite of works on paper by Gordon Walters are available. Together, these works demonstrate Walters’ superior graphic sensibilities and the sublime aesthetic of his oeuvre.

The art market has run incredibly hot this year, and we fully anticipate that this auction will be every bit as sensational as those before it. This show-stopping catalogue is available now for your perusal.

A preview evening will be hosted at our Auckland gallery on Tuesday 7 December, from 6pm to 8pm. Viewing will be available every day from Wednesday 8 December through to the auction, which takes place on Monday 13 December at 6.30pm.
