An oil-on-canvas portrait of Guru Nanak sold for $50,000 at a Sotheby's auction in New York.

The impressive and large 1937 of the first Sikh guru by Arjan Singh had an estimate of $40,000-60,000.

It was the highlight of the Sikh works in the sale of Indian and South East Asian Art that featured a well-curated selection of Indian, Himalayan and South East Asian works.

Culled from private collections in the US, Canada, UK and Europe, and with impeccable provenance, the auction presented a unique opportunity to collectors to acquire the works.
