Now, its Sotheby’s turn to dazzle
BIG DEAL: Andy Warhol’s painting Dollar Sign
close on the heels of Christie’s Indian safari, Sotheby’s, the other leading art auction house, is out to tap the growing market of Indian art collectors. For this, it is organising a special show in Delhi of selected works from its forthcoming London sale of contemporary art and from its New York sale of modern and contemporary south Asian art, beginning Friday.

On display will be a rare and only recently rediscovered David Hockney portrait (with an estimated value of £150,000-200,000), an iconic Andy Warhol Dollar Sign from the collection of Jade Jagger (with an estimated value of £180,000-250,000), among others. “We are so thrilled to be bringing a variety of artworks to India. We believe that there is a real hunger amongst Indian collectors to experience well-known international contemporary artists,” said Yamini Mehta, senior director, Sotheby’s international head of modern and contemporary south Asian art, London and New York.
