Sotheby’s is delighted to offer the first-ever single-owner Modern and Contemporary Iranian sale, which brings together a treasure-trove of artworks from across continents and cultures. The collection reflects decades of connoisseurship and collecting defined by cross-cultural encounters and daring aesthetic experiments.
The collector is an artist himself, a 70s' pioneer who assembled an eclectic range of works which informed his distinctive style and shaped his personal journey. Alchemy: Objects of Desire is the eclectic expression of this ground-breaking aesthete who was himself the product of East and West. Sotheby’s proudly presents a selection of this unique collection with outstanding works by Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg, Charles Hossein Zenderoudi, Hervé Van Der Straeten and Farhad Moshiri.
