This season’s sale features works from across India, the Himalayas, and Southeast Asia, including a large and impressive selection of Indian court paintings. Highlights among the classical Indian paintings include a folio from the so-called ‘Bharany Ramayana’ by the first generation of artists after Nainsukh and Manaku, an eighteenth-century Mughal painting attributed to Mihr Chand, and an illustration from the unusual and bold ‘Impey’ Ramayana series from late eighteenth-century Murshidabad. The sale also highlights Indian sculpture, including an important dated buff sandstone figure of a seated Jina and a Chola-period South Indian bronze figure of dancing Krishna formerly in the collection of John D. Rockefeller III. A assortment of Tibetan paintings and important Himalayan bronzes will also be presented, led by a large and significant fifteenth-century gilt-bronze figure of Maitreya from Central Tibet.
