Dave’s Dupain Faves for the Mossgreen Sale on 19 June

I don’t know how long I have raved about Max Dupain (1911 – 1992) … too long perhaps, but to me, Dupain was not just the photographer who created Australia’s most iconic photograph, the “Sunbaker”, but he was also the first true art photographer.

Dupain had fine art training and was ever the great experimenter with his practice.

The estate sale of over 600 photographs through Mossgreen Auctions in Sydney on June 19th represents a golden opportunity to purchase a piece of magic by one of Australia’s greatest photographers. Yet to be recognised as a genius of his craft, I am sure this time will come.

You can view the offer from 16 June to 18 June 2017 in Sydney at the Mossgreen premises at 36 – 40 Queen Street, Woollahra, and also online on the Mossgreen website.

The auction of Max Dupain – Part II: The final estate photographs takes place on Monday, 19 June, at 36 – 40 Queen Street.

It is held in two sessions, with session 1 from 10.30 am – 1.30 pm for lots 1 – 224, and session 2, for lots 225 – 614, starting at 2 pm.

Anyway, enough of my rave, here are my Dave’s Dupain Faves:
