AUSTRALIAN ART

Since European settlement, Australian artists have forged an enviable reputation. Names like Streeton, McCubbin. Heysen, Drysdale, Boyd, Nolan, Whiteley and many others can be found in major collections throughout the world, and these artists have worked in a range of mediums.

Our auctions feature works from the gamut of Australian artists, both past and present, with examples of pastels, charcoals and watercolours and works on paper available as well as oils and acrylics.

 Artists we feature include: Matthew Johnson, Geoffrey Dyer, David Bromley, Jasper Knight, Charles Blackman, John Olsen, Matthew Quick, Wendy Sharpe, David Boyd, Zhong Chen, Janine Daddo, George Raftopoulos, Cheryl Cusick, Justin Feuerring, Pro Hart, Robert Dickerson, Jeffrey Smart, Becky Guggisberg, Michael Johnson, Tim Storrier, Mark Hanham, Gillie and Marc, Bruce Earles, Colin Parker, Adam Cullen, Judy Cassab, Herman Pekel, Brett Whiteley, Sidney Nolan, Annie Mason, John Coburn, Arthur Boyd, David Rankin, Annie Mason, Geoffrey Proud, Bob Marchant, Dean Vella, Peter Browne, Norman Lindsay, Martin Sharp, Robert Wilson, Maynard Waters, Salvatore Zofrea, Patrick Carroll, Carlos Barrios, Ray Crooke, Constantine Popov, Melinda Harper, Kristie Stenning, Nick Petali, Margaret Olley and others.

INTERNATIONAL ART

Okay, so you’re not likely to find a $30,000,000 Picasso or a museum quality Rembrandt canvas at one of our auctions – it’s a bit out of our league – but you will find original lithographs, etchings, heliographs, offsets and limited edition prints by some of the most famous painters of the 19th and 20th centuries.

We offer works from a range of famous artists including: Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Erte, Gustav Klimt, Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, Louis Icart, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Edouard Manet, Jane Wooster-Scott, Leroy Neiman, Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol, Itzchak Tarkay and others.

ABORIGINAL ART

Long before the advent of European settlement, Aboriginal artists established a long and proud tradition of art that celebrated culture, customs and the landscape. Neglected and often dismissed, Aboriginal art has enjoyed a long overdue revival since the 80s and early 90s, and is now considered to be one of the most collectable art forms in the world today. Ranging in size from small pieces to oversize corporate commissions, all works are accompanied upon request with a certificate of provenance that includes a photo of the artist with the artwork.

Aboriginal artists we feature include: Tommy Watson, Minnie Pwerle, Dorothy Napangardi, Polly Ngale, Gabriella Possum, Shorty Robertson, Judy Watson, Charmaine Pwerle, Makinti Napanangka, Betty Club Mbitjana, Michael Nelson, Gloria Petyarre, Long Jack Phillipus, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Jeannie Pitjarra, Anna Price Petyarre, Barbara Weir, Ningura Napurrula, Kathleen Petyarre, Nellie Marks Nakamarra, Marlene Young, Charlie Tjapangarti, Abie Loy Kemarre, Thomas Tjapaltjarri, Jeannie Mills, Alison Riley Munti, Trephina Sultan, Janet Golder, Samantha Daniels, Lynette Corby, Mitjili Napurrula, Margaret Lewis Napangardi, Lisa Mills, Mary Pitjara, Michael Nelson, Margaret Scobie, Bessie Pitjara and others.

CHARLESTON’S IS AN OFFICIAL MEMBER OF THE AUSTRALIAN AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS ASSOCIATION AND THE INDIGENOUS ART CODE.

Charleston’s was formed in 1997 by a group of like-minded individuals who shared a passion for art. We also had a common belief though art can be defined as “fine”, it doesn’t necessarily mean it should be elitist nor affordable only to investment bankers and multinational corporations.

By creating Australia’s first and, by far, most successful travelling art auction house, we regularly bring quality works of art to Australia’s capital cities and we are the only auction house that travels to major regional centres.
