Good Morning,
Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be happy to assist you with your question. Do you have any photos of the painting you may be able to send along with the a rough estimate of the dimensions?

You can also email pictures [email protected] with ATTN MTantiques in the subject heading. The emails can take up to a few hours to process, but as soon as I receive it I can send my evaluation.

I will send a photo of the painting tomorrow morning Australian time.


We bought it at Mc lean's very first solo exhibition when he was in Year 12 at school about 1990. As you will see it is not obviously related to his later and current work except for a few details I think I can see if I look hard!


Thank you,




Thank you very much Sallie,
I am looking forward to the pictures,
Hello Sallie ,
Thank You very much for sending over the photo.
McLean Edwards (1972-) originally from Darwin, is a Sydney Based artist known for his abstract and portrait works in oil, gouache, acrylic. Edwards works have become popular in Australia mostly from his exhibits in Queensland and in New South Wales.
Based on current market values your abstract oil painting by McLean Edwards would have an auction estimate of 18,000-22,000 dollars in excellent overall condition.
There are a few auction houses in Australia that handle his works, but it seems that
Deutscher-Menzies in Sydney has seen the highest figures for his works in the current market and may be the best possible route if you were considering reselling the work .
I have listed their contact information below:

I hope this information was helpful to you today Sallie,
Best of luck with your McLean Edwards artwork,
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated,
Thank You,
