A Private Look at Sotheby’s 20th Century Middle East Exhibition

ONLINE | 27 - 31 MARCH

Our galleries are now closed to the public but the building has never looked more beautiful thanks to our collaboration with collector JJ Martin, founder of fashion brand La DoubleJ, and so we wanted to share some of that beauty and creativity with you. In this video, specialists Ashkan Baghestani and Mai Eldib give you a private look at our galleries and introduce some of the highlights from their upcoming 20th Century Art / Middle East sale (27 - 31 March | Online). We are delighted to feature the rarest and most sought-after artists from the modern era to the contemporary period, including works by Mohamed Melehi, Kamrooz Aram and Mahmoud Sabri. The exhibition has been further enhanced by an imaginative collaboration, inspired by the sophistication, colour and vintage patterns of collector JJ Martin, founder of fashion brand La DoubleJ.
