Media Release: Artvisory Gallery to Exhibit Works from the Estate of David Boyd
Artvisory Gallery is delighted to have been entrusted by members of the Boyd family to handle works from the Estate of David Boyd, all of which have never been seen by the public before, commencing with an exhibition of what are considered 12 of the very best paintings.
David Boyd and Arthur Boyd (along with ceramicist and sculptor Guy Boyd) were the most successful art-brothers Australia has ever had. While Arthur was the more famous painter in his day, works by David Boyd appear more often in the auction market and he is represented in the collection of every national and state art institution.
David Boyd left Australia to live in London in the 1960’s where he had great success as a painter and ceramicist, before finally returning home in 1975 where he lived till his passing in 2011.
The exhibition will commence Thursday, 6th September until Thursday, 27th September.
