LAUREN BACALL - ESTATE SALE
Over the years of my career, I have been fortunate to have my artworks acquired by many famous people and celebrities. Back in 1986 the wonderful Miss Lauren Bacall was in town to perform in "Sweet Bird of Youth" and during her down time, she visited my representative gallery here in Adelaide. As a result of this visit, she purchased 4 of my works, for her personal collection, I cannot tell you what a thrill it was as a 28 year old to be selected by such a Hollywood Icon.
The sad passing of Miss Bacall in 2014, resulted in 2 of my works being sold in her vast estate sale. The wheel continues to turn.
