Provenance

Private collection, Alice Springs, acquired at Papunya in 1977
Sotheby's, Aboriginal Art, Melbourne, 26 July 2004, Lot 101
Private collection, France

When last sold at Sotheby’s, the vendor who had acquired the work directly from the artist in Papunya in 1977, advised that the painting depicted the artist’s…’father and grandfather as walking skeletons’. As such, this work is another example of the Father/Son/Grandfather Dreaming depicted in the previous lot.
