Approaching the anniversary of the relaunch of our Arab, Iranian and Turkish art sales in London, Sotheby's are delighted to present a cohort of masterworks spanning an array of countries and regions. Highlights of the sale include exceptional works by Samia Halaby, Paul Guiragossian and Charles Hossein Zenderoudi, whose paintings sold for nearly double their estimates in our last April sale. Sotheby’s October sale surveys some of the most significant artists and artworks of the 20th century — artworks influential enough to be considered turning points in history.
