拍卖简介

Christie’s is delighted to announce the single-owner auction Centering the Figure: South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art from the Collection of Romi Lamba taking place during Asian Art Week in New York on 21 September alongside our regular auction of South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art. The works in this catalogue, with their particular focus on narrative figuration, celebrate a rich range of artistic practices from the South Asian subcontinent across the last century.

The significant collection from which this selection is drawn was assembled over the last thirty years with dedicated engagement by Romi Lamba and his wife Sagiri, longtime collectors, supporters and patrons of the arts based in Hong Kong. Highlights from the selection include important paintings representing the oeuvres of Arpita Singh, Manjit Bawa, Anjolie Ela Menon and Jogen Chowdhury, largely unseen in public and appearing at auction for the first time. Also included in the catalogue is an exceptional collection of contemporary photography by artists such as Dayanita Singh, Pushpamala N. and Vivan Sundaram, and contemporary negotiations with figuration by Anju Dodiya, Atul Dodiya, Jitish Kallat and Ravinder Reddy among other artists.
