Hold the bus

The latest Art+Object catalogue is a return to form for the auction house that intends bringing contemporary art auctions into the 21st century. The catalogue goes up on the Art+Auction site today and in addition to the droll Ronnie van Hout cover image I want my mummy, includes an iconic New Zealand-as-skateboard work by Francis Upritchard, an early Michael Stevenson oil painting, a monster (3340 x3870mm) Peter Robinson and a couple of Mirek Smisek’s scraffito vases.
