The James Fairfax Collection of Decorative Arts sells for $1.74 million
THE ARTIST AND THE AUCTIONEER
After three successful auctions together, Leonard Joel and David Bromley are collaborating on a unique auction concept. MODERN + TRADITIONAL – old and new curated by David Bromley for Leonard Joel marks a new chapter in the presentation and approach to auctions. David Bromley has personally selected each piece for this collection with the aim of presenting rooms, spaces and interior concepts for clients in a complete and thoughtful manner. David Bromley: “What we noticed at our three previous auctions was that buyers enjoyed seeing every piece in context rather than having to guess where to place that painting or where to place that sculpture? With MODERN + TRADITIONAL I have simply applied my own aesthetic to every piece and every space with a view to creating an interior with its contents in a manner that I myself would love to live in”.
John Albrecht of Leonard Joel: “I think what is so special about this collection for me is that it is not simply an auction sold by categories. In this collection we really are seeing it curated in a very personal manner by an individual known for his extraordinary capacity to create visual stories.” Antique and 20th century furniture, objects and art from numerous collections are brought together for this auction on Sunday July 7th 2013. The collection will be displayed and sold at 12 Smith Street in Collingwood, an acknowledged design and arts precinct in Melbourne.
