Sotheby’s Middle East and 19th Century European Paintings departments are delighted to announce Orientalist & Middle Eastern Week in London, encompassing the Orientalist sale, Arts of the Islamic World, and 20th Century Art/ Middle East.
These three dedicated sales will be held during the same week in our Bond Street galleries, showcasing art produced under the aegis of multiple Islamic empires which flourished from the ninth to nineteenth centuries in North Africa, the Middle East, Turkey, Persia and India; as well as the influence and sway these regions had on artists from Europe, who pioneered the Orientalist genre in Western art. Collectors and connoisseurs will also be able to view the artistic output of the modern generation of artists, continuing this fascinating thread of historic visual ideas and cultures.
