John Cruthers is one of Australia’s leading art advisers and private curators. He works with private collectors and advises in the areas of Australian historical, contemporary and indigenous art, international modernism of the late 19th-early 20th century and South East Asian art.
He has been the guiding hand behind several of Australia’s most interesting private collections, including the collection of Reg Grundy and Joy Chambers-Grundy, the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art and The Lepley Collection of Aboriginal art.
John’s approach is customised for each collector. It is based on education and inspiration, to enable the building of outstanding collections that reflect the passions and interests of individual collectors. In the end, great collections are not about money. They are driven by vision, commitment, intellectual engagement and the desire to create something original and culturally valuable.
