The catalogue offers a unique opportunity for serious collectors to acquire works making an appearance in the auction market for the very first time since they were acquired directly by their present owners from either the artists themselves, or from galleries," Astaguru said in a statement.
Highlights of the sale include two monumental oil on canvases by Gaitonde from 1970 and 1971.
Estimated at Rs 12-15 crore, the 1970 painting takes on a "minimalistic approach featuring a largely subtle overtone with abstracted forms painted in deep blacks that appear to float on the canvas and break the monochromatic composition of the painting".
