Auction of Archibald Prize portrait aids Afghans left behind

McDonald’s portrait of Veiszadeh, which was a finalist in the 2019 Archibald Prize, is up for auction.

Angus McDonald’s portrait of Veiszadeh, which was a finalist in the 2019 Archibald Prize, was auctioned to raise vital funds for UNHCR’s Afghanistan fundraiser.

The proceeds from the sale of his Archibald Prize portrait of Afghan-born Australian lawyer and writer Mariam Veiszadeh, for $62,000 to Katrina and Simon Holmes á Court tipped the fundraiser into seven figures, delivering a 3x ROI in much-needed funds.

$1 million immediately became $4 million for the UNHCR.
