SYDNEY.- The international auction house Bonhams has appointed Merryn Schriever as the company’s Director in Australia, following the departure of Mark Fraser, who recently left Bonhams to pursue his other interests in the art world.

Merryn, who will be based in Sydney, joined Bonhams as senior art specialist in 2013, and recently curated the highly successful AU$3.5 million sale of Australian and Aboriginal Art that included Brett Whiteley’s Hummingbird and Frangipani which sold for AU$719,800. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the National Art School, Sydney, and has completed Postgraduate studies in Business Management from Macquarie Graduate School of Management.

From 2001, Merryn gained extensive commercial experience in the Australian art market, working in both the primary market with a leading Australian gallery and following that, in business development for the Art Gallery of New South Wales. In 2008, Merryn moved into the art auction world, and worked for Deutscher and Hackett as an art specialist in both Australian and Aboriginal Art before joining Bonhams.

Matthew Girling, Global CEO of Bonhams, said, “Merryn’s proven track record – as evidenced by the superb result for our June sale – makes her the perfect fit to assume the leadership for Bonhams in Australia. Bonhams remains committed to holding sales in Sydney and I know that Merryn will continue to build upon our success.”

Merryn Schriever, Director of Bonhams, Australia, said, “I’m delighted to take on this role. Bonhams is the only international house in Australia, and one of our great selling points is that we are able to use Bonhams’ global network of salerooms in London, New York, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. It means that we can place an item where it will do best, whether it is a painting by Frank Auerbach, that we sold in London for AU$750,000 or a collection of speedway motorbikes and memorabilia from Ivan Mauger which will be offered at The Stafford Sale in England, this October.”
