India’s leading auction house, Saffronart, is returning to The Oberoi, New Delhi, one of the most iconic luxury five-star hotels in the capital. Saffronart, which moved to The Claridges following The Oberoi, New Delhi’s closure in 2016, will inaugurate its new gallery with a preview on 9 February of its upcoming Evening Sale live auction. Over sixty works by leading modern and contemporary artists will be displayed at The Aravalli (the newly refurbished banquet hall on the first level) and in Saffronart’s new gallery space. Highlights include works by Nicholas Roerich, Jehangir Sabavala, Bhupen Khakhar and Tyeb Mehta. The preview coincides with the opening of the India Art Fair, now in its 10th edition.
Saffronart first opened its gallery at The Oberoi, New Delhi in 2011, with a landmark retrospective of works by modernist V S Gaitonde. It has since established itself as a premier exhibition space in the capital.
