Dr Walter Auburn Sotheby Catalogues

Archive Collection Detail

Dr Walter Auburn (1906-1979) was a noted collector of old master prints. He held the position of Honorary Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Auckland City Art Gallery for many years. The Gallery was donated a large number of works from his and his wife, Lore Auburn's collection in 1981. The eleven catalogues were used by Auburn to order prints from. Within their pages are letters and telegrams between Auburn and staff at Sotheby's and Colnaghi's (a staff member from the latter acted as a bidder at Sotheby's sales). There are a small number of loose letters and telegrams not associated with particular catalogues.
