Tom and Karin Smyth began collecting in Melbourne in the early 1960s and, over the next 20 years, built their family collection. Sourced from a wide range of galleries including Tolarno, Australian, Strines, Powell Street, South Yarra, Realities and Rudy Komon, their tastes were wide and idiosyncratic – ranging from the painterly expressionism of the 50s and 60s towards colourfield and photorealism in the 70s.

In short, Tom and Karin made a collection that was very personal and unusually adventurous – and which gave them and their family great enjoyment over many decades.
