This autumn’s Indian & Islamic Week will feature three different sales including the prestigious Sven Gahlin Collection, offering fine Indian miniature painting from the Mughal, Deccani, Pahari and Rajput courts as well as Company School painting. By contrast, the sale of Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art will showcase visionary artworks from artists of the region in the 20th and 21st centuries. The week ends with our biannual sale of Arts of the Islamic World, covering the artistic output produced under Islamic patronage over a thousand years, over three continents.

Sotheby’s is delighted to offer an Indian inspired Afternoon Tea accompanied by the finest selection of Newby Teas.
