Beachwood, Ohio, USA, February 13, 2021 -- A small collection of paintings attributed to the Indian artist Purkhu of Kangra (active circa 1780-1820), two paintings by the Indian artist Badri Narayan (1929-2013), and a 17th century Shah-nameh (or Book of Kings, Iran’s central literary work) are all part of Neue Auctions’ online-only fine art and antiques auction planned for Saturday, February 20th.

“The collection of paintings by Purkhu is already causing quite a stir with collectors and curators around the world, as they are quite rare,” said Cynthia Maciejewski of Neue Auctions. Prices realized typically range from $10,000-$50,000 at auction, depending on the size and medium of the artwork. A Purkhu painting set a record when it hammered for $62,118 at Christie’s in 2015.

An opaque watercolor and gold leaf on paper attributed to Purkhu has been conservatively estimated at $10,000-$20,000. The Harivasma illustration, measuring 14 ½ inches by 20 inches (sight, less matte and frame), was painted circa 1800-1820 and depicts Krishna riding Garuda, accompanied by his son Pradyumna with Arjuna, in battle with Indra astride his white elephant.
