The extraordinary collection of Warren and Cheryl Anderson, sold by court order under divorce proceedings under the company name ‘Owston’, comprising over 1000 lots of the finest furniture, paintings, photographs, and objects d’art, described by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘Assembled over 30 years by the couple, it is almost certainly the largest sale of fine art and antiquities in Australia’.
