    A STORK FROM THE COLLECTION OF JACQUELINE KENNEDY

    Thursday, October 20th, 2016

    A large and arresting study of a Stork eating a snail from the important Lady Impey Series – part of the estate of Jacqueline Kennedy when sold by Sotheby’s in 1996 – brought in £245,000 over a top estimate of £80,000 at Sotheby’s in London this week. The single-owner sale of The Khosrovani-Diba Collection, a prestigious group of Indian miniatures by Mughal masters and fine paintings of the Rajasthani, Pahari and Company Schools, more than doubled pre-sale expectations t0£3,052,500 at Sotheby’s. Over 87% of lots achieved in excess of their high estimates.

    The auction was led by an elegantly coloured and lyrical depiction of Radha consoled by Krishna in a forest, an illustration of a romantic night scene from the “Lambagraon” Gita Govinda series, which made £353,000.
