Our highly anticipated Important Australian + International Fine Art auction is now proceeding,  The auction will be held in Melbourne on Wednesday 15 July following preview exhibitions at our Sydney gallery from Thursday 2 through Sunday 5 July and at our Melbourne gallery from Thursday 9 through Tuesday 14 July.  While visitors are welcome at any time during gallery hours, due to continuing restrictions on assembly, we will be promoting responsible social distancing during the exhibitions. There will be no opening events for this auction.


The success of the D+H ONLINE auction platform, throughout the Covid-19 crisis, has been outstanding.  Selected works, offered with thorough information and multiple high-res images, have been eagerly bid on by collectors after registering with D+H ONLINE.  Modern and contemporary works, indigenous collections and the Pat Corrigan Collection of Australian Black & White Photography all achieved exceptional results in timed online auctions.  A special event was the ‘solo-auction’ of Del Kathryn Barton’s Archibald Prize winning portrait, hugo-2013 (estimate: $120,000 - 160,000), which was streamed live online and attracted bidding from the internet and telephones, achieving a stunning result of $270,000 inc. BP. 

A trusted online market place is an important ongoing service and we will continue to provide this option for our clients.  Please contact us if you wish to consign to a forthcoming D+H ONLINE auction.

We are all looking forward to welcoming visitors back to our exhibitions and auctions so that we can once again present remarkable works of art to our valued clients.  Thank you for your patience and support during the extraordinary period of lockdown and we trust that the efforts made by the community will ensure a safe and bright future.
