    BHAGAT Diamonds – Fragment brooch

    Inspired by Mughal architecture this brooch is designed as a jewelled ‘fragment’. It features an Old-European cut diamond weighing 4.82 carats surmounted by a faceted Colombian Emerald drop weighing 9.77 carats. The brooch is mounted in Platinum, signed BHAGAT. This Fragment Brooch by BHAGAT Diamonds of Mumbai is now on display at TEFAF online.

    BHAGAT produces fewer than 60 pieces a year and works with a strictly limited but opulent palette of precious gemstones, often rare and important stones in vintage cuts, and platinum. The essence of BHAGAT’s originality lies in the manner in which classical Indian forms and motifs are united with a contemporary sensibility that, while it combines aspects of east and west, is entirely original. Now in its fourth and fifth generations, BHAGAT is run by Viren along with his two sons, Varun and Jay. In recent years their works have been displayed at The Kremlin State Museum in Moscow, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The Miho Museum in Kyoto, The Grand Palais in Paris, The Palazzo Ducale in Venice and the Palace Museum in Beijing.

    Donald Judd’s Untitled (1988) is a Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac highlight at TEFAF online New York from October 30-November 4. One of the most influential artists of the post-war period, Judd (1928–1994) radically transformed notions of the ‘visible’, developing a rigorous visual vocabulary that emphasises simple, mathematical proportions and openness of form. Untitled belongs to one of Judd’s principle and best-known bodies of work – the ‘stacks’, which he first created in galvanised iron in 1965.

    This is TEFAF’s first virtual fair, which will provide attendees with direct, live access to its community of world-renowned dealers.
