Inhouse ‘Live’ Sale Saturday, 9 October 2021 - 2:00 PM start

Welcome to this, the first ‘live’ auction from Heritage Art Auctions. Thankfully, we’re now at Delta Level 2 which means that we can accommodate up to 100 bidders in the saleroom. Unfortunately, our friends from Auckland are unable to join us on this occasion but, as with overseas bidders, will be able to either bid online in real time, by telephone or by placing a confidential online maximum bid prior to the auction beginning. Maximum bids can also be left by phoning us on 027 471 2242 no later than 11am on the day of the auction but will also need to be confirmed by email before being accepted into the system. Lot Descriptions We have tried to give as much information as possible on each artwork. Often, buyers would like to know a little about the background of artists, whose works they are interested in. Where possible we have provided a biographical link with background info. The references come from SIX sources: • Henry Newrick’s New Zealand Art Auction Records (NZAAR) • Una Platt’s Nineteenth Century New Zealand Artists (PLATTS) • Kate McGahey’s Concise Dictionary of New Zealand Artists (CONCISE) • Robert Smith’s Concise Dictionary of Australian Artists (CDOAA) • Find NZ Artists: (This site will tell you where and when artists exhibited. • Google If the Biographical reference says (for example) ‘NZAAR at 116’ it means that you will find a short biography on the artist at Page 116 of New Zealand Art Auction Records. If you don’t already have a copy of this 184 page book you are entitled to a FREE PDF copy when you join our mailing list. The download link will appear after you join the mailing list. Una Platt’s book is already available online in PDF format. You’ll have to purchase the Concise Dictionaries to use these references. Google is self-explanatory. If we could find no reference then we simply say - ‘no reference’. Viewing Day All works in this sale can be viewed in the Events Room at Heritage House on Friday October 9th from 10am-5pm and again on Saturday 9th October from 10am until 1pm.
