‘Bag’ of rare ‘pussy-shag’ from ‘Mighty Aphrodite’ exhibition opens in Melbourne

Melbourne: The ‘Bags of Mighty Aphrodites’ exhibition has been opened in Melbourne’s Art Gallery, with the sale of the rare ‘Pussy-Shag’ painting set to start on Sunday.

The ‘Manny Aphroditic’ painting, owned by Australian artist Paul Gildernagel, is the only one in existence of the classic work, the first of the two Aphrodistic paintings by German-born Dutch artist Wilhelm Genscher, which he completed in 1483.

The exhibition was announced at the end of March, and has already been sold out.

The painting, titled ‘Bagnets,’ is a large, flat canvas with large painted rectangles.

Its owner, Art Gallery of Melbourne, said the painting was donated to the gallery by the Gilderlings and the work was originally painted by a local artist.

“The painting was commissioned by the museum in 2002 as part of a larger project to enhance and expand the Museum’s collections of Gilderbek and Gildenbrück paintings,” the gallery said in a statement.

The sale, which is being held on the first Saturday of the month from 10am to 6pm, includes three works of art by Gilderts, ‘Mature’, ‘Mannikin’ and ‘Wine,’ along with the ‘Pillow’ and the ‘Bathtub,’ two other works.

Gilderton has been the subject of an online auction for the past year and was previously the subject to a public auction in the UK.

His work is a rarity in Australia, and is one of the few known Aphrodic works, having only been painted in the Netherlands.

“He has been described as the most remarkable contemporary artist in Australia and the Netherlands, and also the greatest American artist,” the Gilda Dene Museum of Art’s chief executive, Helen Fung, said.

“We hope to have a public gallery show of his paintings at the Museum of Contemporary Art Melbourne.”

Gildercanels paintings are considered one of his finest, and were commissioned by his family and the Dutch royal family, and sold by the Dutch painter’s family in 2002 for $2.4 million.

Grenderts is also a prolific artist, having published more than 20 books, and recently completed a book of illustrations.
