New York
Indian, Himalayan & Southeast Asian Works of Art

Sale Overview

This season’s sale features works from across India, the Himalayas, and Southeast Asia, led by the remaining selection of Gandharan sculptures from an important private Japanese collection, the first half of which was offered in last September’s record-breaking sale, Devotion in Stone. Other highlights include a rare Chola-period bronze figure of the Shaivite saint Sambandar with early provenance, a well-published folio from the dispersed ‘Lambagraon’ Gita Govinda series attributed to the Kangra court artist Purkhu, a 14th-15th century gilt-bronze figure of a Tibetan Lama, and a fine and rare painting of the Buddhist patron, Hvashang.
