The online auction features 600 lots arranged into seven sessions: Decorative Arts (Oriental), Young/Emerging Artists, Paintings and Sculpture, Works on Paper, Prints and Multiples, Books, and Fine Wine.
The fine wine section of the online auction includes 100 lots from 60 producers, including exclusive vintages from iconic South African winemakers such as Meerlust, Kanonkop, Klein Constantia and Sadie Family as well as more contemporary labels such as Alheit, Ataraxia and Glenelly. There are also some exceptional wines from overseas on offer too including a set of fine Bordeaux, a top Burgundy, Champagne and a Côte-Rôtie, making this an exciting opportunity for dedicated oenophiles and novice wine drinkers alike to purchase some special occasion, investment-worthy bottles.
Major names whose artworks feature in the fine art auction include contemporary artist Sipho Ndlovu known for his ingenious seemingly three-dimensional works on canvas, Trevor Coleman, whose vividly coloured scenes of African streets and landscapes are always eye-catching, and watercolours by the always popular early twentieth-century Namibian landscape artist Adolph Jentsch.
