Over the past decade, Middle Eastern art has gained increasing recognition on the international stage and has begun to capture the attention of Asian collectors.
Sotheby’s first exhibition of Middle Eastern art in Asia will present works by two iconic artists: Reza Derakshani (b. 1952), one of Iran’s most celebrated living painters, and Lebanese-born modern sculptor Alfred Basbous (1924 – 2006). The show will provide Asian collectors a unique opportunity to discover the work of these outstanding artists, whilst introducing Middle Eastern art to an even wider global audience.
The selling exhibition is guest-curated by international art advisors Arianne Levene Piper and Eglantine de Ganay-d’Espous, in association with Sophia Contemporary Gallery and the Alfred Basbous Foundation, and will offer for sale twelve bronze and marble sculptures by Alfred Basbous and fifteen new oil-on-canvas works by Reza Derakshani.
