The most significant private loan exhibition ever staged in Australia will be launched at Sotheby’s Australia’s new Sydney premises on Monday 10 March.  Russell Drysdale’s Australia: Masterpieces from Private Collections features more than 40 paintings that have been exclusively sourced from Australian and international private collections for a strictly limited two week exhibition.  Many of the works have been hidden from public view since they were created, whilst others have never been reproduced.  No works of art are for sale and proceeds from the exhibition and associated events will be directed to support The Australian Ballet.
