Artists Represented

Sotheby's Australia proudly represents the following artists and estates

 Albert Tucker

   

Sotheby's Australia is the exclusive agent who represents the Albert & Barbara Tucker Foundation. 

Albert Tucker belongs to the generation of Australian artists – which included Russell Drysdale and Sidney Nolan – whose images of rural and outback Australia defined for many what it was to be Australian.  Tucker’s first sustained series of the Australian landscape evolved during his period in Europe and the United States of America between 1947 and 1960. Living abroad, Tucker reflected upon his ‘Australianness’ and developed images that both acknowledged his European experiences and simultaneously introduced new techniques that influenced his subsequent iconography.

Compared to many of his contemporaries, Tucker produced relatively few paintings.  A large percentage of these reside in public institutions, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane.
