Billy Benn and Tommy Watson (Collector's Portfolio)
These fine examples of two highly regarded and highly collectable senior men artists have been reluctantly put up for resale as their owners have moved interstate and no longer have walls large enough to house them.
Billy Benn produced very few works of this scale and this was one of the most memorable paintings we had in the Gallery. One of our key national galleries put it on hold immediately but because of lack of funding at that time couldn’t proceed so these astute collectors managed to buy it. It is quite magnificent.
This Tommy Watson painting has a rich and powerful presence and would suit a highly contemporary home equally as one with more traditional interior of dark wood furniture.
