Significant Indian Paintings

Titled "˜Significant Indian Paintings", Sale 0007 reflects our ongoing endeavour to bring to the fore works of unsung heroes of modern Indian art's germination period. Apart from this fact, we have also tried to showcase some of the more unusual works of the masters such as Raja Ravi Varma's portrait of a scholarly Maharaja Serfoji II of Tanjore embellished with gomedhaks which shows the influence of the traditional Tanjore School, F N Souza's tribute to Rabindranath Tagore besides other rare yet trademark works and Jamini Roy's female nude which is one of his earliest works whilst he was shifting over to his now acclaimed folk style. We also have on offer prominent works of Nicholas Roerich, H Mazumdar, Allah Bux and a host of other known as well as unknown or relatively unknown artists. The latter two categories have only added to the curatorial significance of this auction catalogue. On the same note, we have a work by Pranay Ranjan Roy, an artist whose work is appearing for the first time ever in an auction in India! Accordingly this forthcoming auction offers a diverse selection of works, including art books & prints, at estimates starting from just Rs 20,000 and going up to Rs 1,75,00,000 ($ 435 - $ 380,400) and as always, you can be rest assured that any lot you wish to own will be worth the winning bid.
