An Anticipated Affair

A glimpse of the dimensions of fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi’s wealth recently came to light with the auction of some of his artworks. The much-anticipated affair in Mumbai not only showcased his credentials as an art collector but also displayed his fondness for doing things in a big way. Suffice to say that those who successfully placed their bids that night, walked away with some largish works. When hanging on the wall, many of these works would be hard to miss, rather they’d dominate. Here are some works that were auctioned.
