Christie’s autumn sale of Islamic and Indian art taking place on the 26 October will offer a curated selection of carpets, ceramics, manuscripts, textiles, works on paper, and metalwork from the Islamic world. With objects ranging in date from the mid-7th century to the 20th century and representing a geographical area stretching from Spain through to Central Asia, the auction will highlight the global reach and the longevity of Islamic culture. Covering a diversity of artistic traditions, the sale will demonstrate why the high standards of craftsmanship shared across the region continue to be prized by collectors today. The auction will be followed on the 27 October by the sale of the Toby Falk Collection of Indian paintings, accumulated over his three-decade career of study and scholarship.
