CHG Director's Statement: Charles Blackman is one of Australia’s most significant artists. A true master of figurative art, his works have been likened to those of Picasso and Sidney Nolan.

In 1997 Blackman was awarded an Order of the British Empire for his services to art and his works are displayed in all State Galleries as well as in many private collections around the world including that of Lindsay Fox, Lachlan Murdoch and Kerry Stokes who have hung Blackmans.

Several of his major pieces have sold for well over $500,000 and in 2006 Alice's Journey achieved $1.02 million. In 2016 the Alice in Wonderland oil The Game of Chess set an auction record for the artist at Sotheby’s Australia’s final Important Australian art sale of 2016 achieving $1.78 million.
