Talking about the upcoming auction, Sneha Gautam, Senior Vice President of Client Relations at AstaGuru Auction House says: “Our Collectors Choice format aims to showcase a large bouquet of rare and important artworks. The curation is done with a deep understanding of artistic nuances and each edition features a substantial selection. Crafting a noteworthy collection demands years of dedication, a discerning eye, and a thirst for exploration and understanding of an artist’s journey and body of work. Enthusiastic collectors seek pieces that resonate with them while acknowledging the artist’s skill and recognising significant milestones in their oeuvre. The fundamental goal is to offer collectors a diverse array of choices to enrich their collections and take them on a journey through the evolution of an artist’s oeuvre by offering pieces that resonate deeply and validate the artist’s mastery.”
