Monochrome: Modern and Contemporary Art

Timed Online Auction, 7 - 27 March 2023

Monochrome
About the Session

The monochrome session features artworks from big hitters such as William Kentridge, Robert Hodgins, Joni Brenner, Deborah Bell, and Irma Stern. Each work explores form through the manipulation of a material rather than through the addition of colour. 

Artworks from the sale will be displayed in a dedicated space at Strauss & Co’s new offices in Brickfield Canvas, 35 Brickfield Road, Woodstock. 

The monochrome session is an extended session that opens on Tuesday 7 March at 8 am and concludes at 2 pm on the 27th of March, closing in 1-minute intervals.
