PGAV members and supporters are invited to attend a tour of two private collections – Norman Rosenblatt’s collection spans visual and decorative art, beginning with the purchase at age 14 of a Russell Drysdale drawing from his uncle Joseph Brown (11am-1pm); followed by a tour of the Justin Art House Museum, an initiative of Charles and Leah Justin, who are passionate collectors of contemporary art (2pm-4pm).   

 

JUSTIN ART HOUSE MUSEUM COLLECTION

Charles and Leah Justin have been collecting contemporary art for over 40 years, more seriously over the last 20 years. Their collection comprises over 250 works and continues to grow.


Reflecting the architectural background of Charles Justin, the collection has a strong focus on the theme of ‘Space’.  This theme was explored in an exhibition ‘Perceptions of Space: Justin Collection’ curated by Diane Soumilas at Glen Eira City Council Gallery in 2014.   

The collection includes a diverse spectrum of art practice including painting, sculpture, works on and from paper, and photography.  There is a strong emphasis on digital and video work.  The first work in the collection acquired in 1971 is an abstract painting by Lorraine White, offered as an honorarium for a house design Charles completed for a friend. Recent acquisitions include photographs by Daniel Von Sturmer, painting by Ash Keating, painting and drawing by Justin Andrews and a graphite drawing by Simon Finn.

 

NORMAN ROSENBLATT & HIS COLLECTION

Norman Rosenblatt’s passion for art started early at age. It was encouraged by his uncle, Joseph Brown, from whom he purchased a Russell Drysdale drawing at age 14 with saved up pocket money. Joseph Brown is renowned in Australian art history as a collector, dealer, gallery owner and major benefactor of the National Gallery of Victoria.  Norman describes his collection as eclectic, it spans Danila Vassilieff’s paintings, Schulim Krimper’s furniture through to work by Arts Project Australia artists. This is an incredible opportunity to see Norman’s private collection and learn about his approach to collecting and how he displays it within his home.
