By Business Standard
Nov 27, 2022
AstaGuru has focused largely on presenting works by eminent modern and contemporary Indian artists so far
The works of some of the most iconic artists who revolutionised modern art in the 20th century will adorn the first exclusive international auction of AstaGuru on Monday and Tuesday.
The highlight of the prized collection is a painting by French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, the Mumbai-based auction house said.
Titled “Baigneuse Assise” or the Seated Bather (circa 1915), this painting was once in possession of British playwright and novelist William Somerset Maugham.
A signature piece of Renoir, whose legacy includes portraits, landscapes and a celebration of feminine sensuality, the painting also featured on the cover of Maugham’s book, “Purely for my Pleasure” (1962).
