Arthur Boyd - Bride Running Away AuctionUPDATED: Bride Running Away has set a new record for a Boyd Painting, fetching $AU1.68 Million at auction. The work was created in 1957, and is part of the “love marriage and death of a half caste” series, exploring the plight of Indigenous Australians at a time when they were greatly marginalised. The painting has been in a private collection since 1969.

Geoffrey Smith from Sotheby’s said the sale presented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy the famous painting. “Bride Running Away is an icon of 20th century Australian art,” Mr Smith said.

“It was purchased by the current owners from Australian Galleries in 1969 and has never been offered publicly for sale.”

Mr Smith pointed out that the piece had great cultural significance. “It’s an incredibly seminal painting, a key work in his oeuvre.
