Sotheby’s pioneered the field of Indian and Southeast Asian art establishing the first dedicated department in this category in New York in 1985, more than a decade ahead of our competitors. Sotheby’s has conducted numerous notable sales and offered renowned single-owner collections including: Indian Miniature Paintings from the Nasli and Alice Heeramaneck Collection, The British Rail Pension Fund Collection, the Bachofen von Echt Collection, the Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck Collection and the Collection of Paul F. Walter; and more recently, The Jucker Collection of Himalayan Paintings, The Speelman Collection of Important Early Ming Buddhist Bronzes, The Collection of Tuyet Nguyet and Stephen Markbreiter, The Tipu Sultan Collection and The Stuart Cary Welch Collection

This department handles works ranging in date from the first century CE to the 19th century heyday of the British Raj. The cultures and continents covered in our sales include a wide geographic swathe stretching from Afghanistan to Indonesia and from Mongolia to Sri Lanka. Our seasoned team of experts is based in London and New York, and works closely with key regional offices worldwide to source and sell the finest works to a global clientele spread across the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
