Oz Art Auction Bargain Hunting – artmarketblog.com

wong Oz Art Auction Bargain Hunting   artmarketblog.comWith the Australian dollar considerably weaker than it was six months ago at around $0.64 US dollars there are plenty of bargains to be had for international buyers whose dollar is in better shape than the Australian dollar. The New Zealand dollar is even lower than the Australian dollar at $0.55 US dollars but New Zealand doesn’t offer the same diversity and number of works to choose from as Australia does. There are quite a few art auctions due to take place in Australia and New Zealand during November so I have compiled some highlights from a few auctions that may be of interest to art collectors and investors from all over the world.  There are also some excellent works by Australian artists being sold but as they are probably not of that much interest to international readers I have focused on the international works.  With the Australian dollar expected to rebound next year however, it could be worth looking at the works by Australian artists which could then be resold into the Australian market if the Australian dollar rebounds as expected.
