Sotheby’s is delighted to offer the second part of an outstanding selection of works, unparalleled in quality, brought together by a true avant-garde collector from the Middle East. A Maverick Eye comprises a kaleidoscopic group of works from a meticulously curated collection; one unbridled in passion and built from an extraordinarily deep fascination with art and its creation.

Eschewing the ease of following popular trends, the present collection was assembled with a concentration on quality and through a critical survey of the burgeoning rise of the Contemporary art scene from the early 2000s. Over the span of 20 years, the collection, in its breadth and depth, demonstrated a voracious appetite for collecting and a relentless pursuit of truly thought-provoking works.

The collection maintains a pedagogical element with a focus on conceptual coherence. A Maverick Eye offers collectors a unique opportunity to survey some of the most innovative artists whose works have been chosen through a discerning commitment to quality and uniqueness. Part I of A Maverick Eye has been sold in the 20th Century/ Middle East sale in London on 22 October 2019 and the part II in this present sale.
