6:30pm Tuesday 15 May 2018
A new record price was achieved for a Heather Straka painting at auction. 'The Asian' saw a competitive bidding duel eventually finish at $34,000 hammer price - the second significant New Zealand art auction record for a Contemporary work is as many months. Last month saw the $82,500 bid for a Karl Maughan. The Auckland collector who consigned 82 works left happy with many of his works finding new homes and some top prices paid and the remaining 60 plus lots saw some great results. Just under $500,000 in sales with some works still under negotiation.
