Screen Shot 2017-07-14 at 6.14.38 pm

Lauraine Diggins Fine Art is pleased to invite you to takeCloser Look At… Myths and Legends in our Collectors’ Exhibition of Australian art.

The idea of myths and legends applies to a number of artworks in diverse ways, from Greek tales (Leonard French’s The Kings) to Australian narratives, including heroic figures from the bush (Russell Drysdale’s stoic stockman confronting the viewer in Rain at Cattle Creek);  Australian explorers (David Boyd Burke and Wills in the Desert); and the pioneering pastoralists surviving on the land (Artur Loureiro (An Australian Scene)).

News for June 2017

Our new catalogue is a selection of 52 items including one of the great voyage rarities: an original Quiros presentation memorial. Dating from 1611 this is one of only 14 different Memorials known to have been printed by Quiros (at his own considerable expense), which mark the earliest printed record of discovery and plans for settlement of a Southern Continent.

Our cover item is from Lieutenant Robert Dale’s famously important and vivid nine-foot wide View of King George’s Sound. Published in 1834, this remarkable panorama was probably intended to excite interest in the fledgling Colony. Included too are…

An Impressive Pearl Bangle!

At the turn of the last Century pearls were incredibly rare and reserved for the fortunate few. With advances in technology and the growth of the industry, particularly in the remote parts of Western Australia we are now enjoying the finest quality pearls of any age. Large, clean, pure white pearls with a high lustre like this one are now accessible to a much wider audience. With nearly one and a half carats of diamonds this bangle is outstanding. Available in Melbourne’s first Pearl Specialist store on Collins St.
