Wendy Whiteley Buys A Whiteley


An early Brett Whiteley painting which has been off the market since 1971 when it was purchased by the vendor in London through Marlborough Gallery, has been sold by Shapiro Auctioneers in a private treaty sale. The large gouache on board is titled Bather and Mirror, and is dated 1964, measuring 145 x 152 cm. The work was exhibited the same year at Doumenta III, Kassel, Germany. The work remains in pristine condition with all exhibition labels intact on the reverse.
