AlBahie’s Live Auction of Modern and Contemporary Art
November 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
The auction comprises major works by emerging and established artists alongside internationally renowned artists of the Arab diaspora. The auction is led by an exceptional encaustic collage by Samia Halaby (Lot 53, Dance on Canal One, estimated value US $10,000 – $12,000), and eight Icons of The Nile by Chant Avedissian (Lots 17 – 24, estimated value US $7,000 – $9,000 each), being offered for the first time since the artist’s recent passing.
AlBahie will also offer outstanding works by Fateh Al Mouadarres, Shakir Hassan Al Said and Baya Mahieddine, all of which will be auctioned in Doha for the first time. Alongside these are works from the personal collection of Dr Jochen A Sokoly, including works by notable artists Ali Hassan, Ramin Haerizadeh, Arwa Abouon, and Youssef Nabil.
AlBahie is inviting everyone to see the pre-auction exhibition, currently on view in AlBahie Auction House at Katara Cultural Village, or you can check out this link to view the e-catalogue.
