Pundole is hosting the fourth auction of the late Jamshed Bhabha’s estate. The inaugural auction in October 2011 had comprised his personal property from the house he shared with his parents, wife and brother, Dr Homi Bhabha.
Earlier, Pundole’s had also sold twenty paintings from his personal collection and from the existing collection of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA).
This time around, one of the highlights of the sale is a group of antiquities from Dr Bhabha’s personal collection, including two pieces of Gandharan sculpture, several pieces of stone from Central India, and a 13th century bronze Saint Sambandar.
The sales will be in benefit of the NCPA. Categories include classical Indian sculpture from the 2nd century onwards, miniature paintings, Japanese scrolls, Tanjore School paintings, modern Indian art, Asian and European ceramics, silver, furniture, textiles and glass.
Those who wish to view the items can do so at the Entrance Foyer, NCPA, today and tomorrow.
