IANSlife caught up with expert Sonal Singh, Managing Director of Christie’s India, for her top three picks.

Lot 15 (Paris) a historic ‘En Forme’ Low Table by Charlotte Perriand

“I am very interested in mid-century design and have always admired her work. The exceptional traditional Japanese craftsmanship combined with the ‘Forme libre’ lines of Charlotte Perriand is a rarity in Perriand’s work. There are only two other examples of this model known to exist. This example was presented in the landmark exhibition Proposition d’une Synthèse des arts, Paris, 1955. Le Corbusier, Fernand Léger, Charlotte Perriand in Japan in 1955. The extraordinary piece was part of several major exhibitions on the work of Perriand, the last of which was the Le monde nouveau de Charlotte Perriand exhibition in Paris in 2019-2020, organised by the Louis Vuitton Foundation. These pieces of furniture are iconic. Perriand offers a real utilitarian purpose makes them so much more exciting to live with.”

L’arc de triomphe (1962), by Rene Margaritte

“Surrealism is by far one of the most exciting and inspiring periods of art. Painted in 1962, Lot 36, ‘L’arc de triomphe’ by Rene Magritte highlights the London sale. A magnificent verdant tree on a large canvas, the artist celebrates the triumph of the sublime beauty of absolute synergy. Magritte was one of the most witty and elegant artists from this period and any work by Magritte holds these qualities.”

Une lune bleue (1971), by Alexander Calder

“Lot 29, One Lune Bleue is a mesmerizing large-scale example of Alexander Calder’s celebrated mobiles. Throughout his oeuvre, Calder remained fascinated by the unseen rhythms of the natural world. Each piece suspended in space seems to hold within it, the perfect balance. It would be a dream to own one of Calder’s mobiles.”
