NEW DELHI: Rare works by leading Indian modernists including MF Husain, Ram Kumar, and F N Souza will go under the hammer at AstaGuru's upcoming online sale on June 25-26, the auction house said in a statement. Over 50 per cent of the 120 works that will be part of the "Collector Choice - A Curated Presentation of Rare Modern Indian works" will be making their auction debut, it added.
Highlights of the auction include "Ivory Eyes" (1976), an enamel on canvas work, by Prabhakar Barwe, which is also the cover lot of the auction catalogue.
Estimated at Rs 20 - 30 lakh, Barwe's paintings emerged from the perfect conjunction of form, space and mystery, hereby creating a new pictorial association.
A symbolist abstractionist from the JJ School of Art, Barwe's paintings reflect the voyage he undertook in search for pictorial purity and balance, the auction house said.
The sale will also feature two works by M F Husain.
