Islamic Art

English | 繁體中文

Christie’s hosts sales in this category twice a year, as part of Islamic Art Week, comprising carpets, ceramics, manuscripts, textiles, works on paper and metalwork from the Islamic realm, which stretches from the Middle East and Southern Spain to China, India and Southeast Asia. Islamic Art is vast in its chronological and regional scope, and offers a range of artistic expression at the intersection of the academic and collectors’ market.

Exceptional recent results include a world record of £1,426,500 for a rare and important Iznik dish, Ottoman Turkey, circa 1510, £505,250 for an Indian miniature painting depicting Ibrahim Adil Shah II Of Bijapur, central India, early 17th century, and £2,484,500 for a Qur’an leaf palimpsest on vellum, probably Madina, mid-7th century.
