FED: Minister Says No to Selling Blue Poles

Wed 24 May 2017

Arts Minister Mitch Fifield has ruled out selling the iconic painting Blue Poles despite the suggestion of one of his Liberal colleagues.

Senator James Paterson last year said it was time to cash in the Jackson Pollock painting Gough Whitlam famously bought for the national gallery in the 1970s for $1.3 million, but now valued at about $350 million, to pay down federal debt.

Senator Fifield told a Senate hearing in Canberra on Wednesday the government wouldn't be selling the "destination" artwork, noting "decisions about the collection are ones for the council of the gallery".
