Our Modern Middle East & Indian Art Valuations team

Our first modern and contemporary middle east and south asian art expert received her BA in History of Art and her MA in History of Art and Archaeology. After becoming the lead cataloger for Sotheby’s Middle East Department and their Contemporary Arab & Iranian art annual sales between 2008-2012, she left to join the gallery ArtSpace. Now, she is a regular contributor for the Arabic language newspaper Al Hayat, Muftah, and the Culture Trip.

After graduating with a degree in archaeology, our second Modern & Contemporary Middle East and South Asian specialist went to catalogue at Bonhams in London where he helped to establish the department. He was a major contributor to the sale of contemporary Iranian artist, Farhad Moshiri's, Eshgh which sold for over $1 million.
