Forming a panoptic picture of North African, Middle Eastern & Ottoman Society a century and more ago, the Najd Collection is the vision of one collector active in the 1980s. Eager to look beyond the confines of their own Western experience, all the artists represented travelled to and spent time in the region to portray first-hand what they saw and experienced. The legacy of their work has provided an invaluable documentary narrative of a world that has since been transformed by modernisation and, in some cases, conflict.
This spring, following the market-defining sale of 40 works in October 2019, Sotheby’s is honoured to present a further 35 Orientalist paintings from the Najd Collection as a stand-alone sale on 31 March. Works by key exponents of the genre including Jean-Léon Gérôme, Ludwig Deutsch and Gustav Bauernfeind will go on view at Sotheby’s London during Orientalist & Middle Eastern week from 27 March.
