On March 13, Sotheby's will present the 'Amaya Collection' in New York, the first international evening sale of Indian art and the first single-owner sale in this category

The sale will offer some of the finest examples from the oeuvres of key artists, including highly sought-after and important works by 20th century modernist masters M F Husain, Tyeb Mehta, F N Souza, S H Raza, and Vasudeo Gaitonde, many of which have been extensively published and exhibited internationally.

The auction of 43 lots is estimated at approximately $ 5-7 million. The works were exhibited here.
