Indian Paintings & Sculpture
Interest in Indian paintings and sculpture has grown in demand over recent years, and Freeman's expert team has established an international reputation for their sales in this category. Through our Philadelphia based and online auctions, our specialists’ knowledge of Indian art and its current market have been essential to the successful sale of modern and contemporary works by artists such as Vasudeo Gaitonde, Abdur Rahman Chughtai, Ram Kumar, Laxma Goud, and Shyamal Dutta-Ray. Featured in our auctions of Modern & Contemporary Art, Indian art has become a rapidly growing category and Freeman’s has had many recent successes.
Since the founding of Freeman’s Modern & Contemporary Art Department in 2007, works by Indian artists have exceeded expectations. Most notably, an early painting by Vasudeo Gaitonde, India’s pioneering abstract artist, soared past its presale estimate for $150,000-250,000 to sell for $373,000. Works by masters of Indian art Francis Newton Souza, M.F. Husain, and Jamini Roy, are frequently featured in these auctions and regularly meet or exceed pre-sale auction estimates.
Freeman’s has become a leader in hosting online auctions for buying and selling Indian paintings and sculpture during its two yearly auctions.
