Dave’s Faves for Menzies Auction on 10 August 2017

Art collectors are driven by passion, not just for the art, but the history of art, the artist and their contemporaries, and endless connections between them.

In this regard, public art galleries and private collectors have much in common, and private collectors may go on to donate some or all of their own collection to a public museum, or even build their own art gallery.

You might have much more modest goals with your own art collecting. Whatever your motivations, building your own private art museum at home can be richly rewarding and also a lot of fun.

Importantly, you should buy in the right places, and the Menzies fine art auction on 10 August is a good place to start or continue your own museum at home collection.

For independent advice prior to any purchase, we can assist you with research and analysis, and also with experienced bidding on the night and after-purchase management. For more information, contact us on 02 9977 7764 or email info@bhfineart.com
