A Millennium of Middle Eastern Art in London

Launch Slideshow

Sotheby’s Orientalist and Middle East Week comprises three sales dedicated to more than 1000 years of artistic production, encompassing The Orientalist Sale, Arts of the Islamic World, and 20th Century Art/Middle East. These auctions showcase art produced under the aegis of multiple Islamic empires which flourished from the 9th to 19th century; as well as the influence these regions had on the Europeans 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.
