Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 maggio 2018

London – On 12 June, Christie’s will host the 24th annual sale of South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art alongside the Arts of India auction as part of Indian Art London. These sales will offer collectors an exciting opportunity to buy classical Indian art from early Gandharan sculpture to Company School painting, all the way through to iconic modern paintings by leading artists Vasudeo S. Gaitonde, Tyeb Mehta, and a never before seen sculpture by Ravinder Reddy. The South Asian Modern + Contemporary sale features Untitled (Goddess), illustrated above, a formative example of the artists’ now iconic representations of deified Indian women (Lot 46, estimate: £25,000 – 35,000). Bringing together the ancient and the contemporary, and linking temple, kitsch and Pop art, Reddy’s larger than life sculptures command attention from the viewer and challenge traditional notions of beauty, femininity, and domesticity.
