March 15, 2009 - PRLog -- Jennefer Doyle, the artist’s widow, has recently authenticated a large number of works from Ronald Coles’ stock room for fine art auction house Bonhams and Goodman.

Now, to address and set right these uncertainties for individual owners, Jennefer Doyle has agreed to authenticate D’Arcy Doyle’s original works for private owners as well. Banziger Hulme Fine Art Consultants are organising the authentication day in their office in Manly on 27th March 2009.

Brigitte Banziger said: “This is a one-off opportunity for Sydney-based owners of works by D’Arcy Doyle, as Jennefer Doyle will only authenticate works through physical inspection and not from photographs. Mrs Doyle will fly specifically to Sydney from Queensland for the day only.”

David Hulme said: “We have had many calls from concerned collectors of D’Arcy Doyle paintings from far and wide. They just want to be reassured of the authenticity of their works. This opportunity is finally some good news. We felt it would be important to assist the individual owners of his works, so they can get peace of mind.”

Detailed information is available on on dates and location for delivery of works prior to the day.

Owners can contact Banziger Hulme by phoning + 61 2 9977 0700 or by email to to make arrangements, as paintings will have to be delivered before the day to their office in Manly.
