A rare glimpse of a great artist working

We respectfully advise that the following blog contains images of a deceased artist.

Recently I sourced a beautiful painting by famous indigenous artists Minnie Pwerle for a client who loves her work. The painting is very similar to the first Minnie Pwerle painting I ever bought and which I will never sell.

Upon receipt of the paperwork I was thrilled to see that there were several work in progress photos of it being painted, very rare provenance for Minnie Pwerle’s work.

The painting, depicting Minnie’s famous Awelye, Body Paint Dreaming, has been executed with a minimal colour palette of gold, cream and white, with two surprise splashes of lime green and rusty red balanced artfully across the canvas. This vibrant and beautiful painting now hangs in pride of place in my clients home.
