Akbar Padamsee and Adi Davierwalla: A Friendship | Summer Online Auction (24 - 25 June 2020)

In the 1960s, Akbar Padamsee and Adi Davierwalla each expressed a wish to acquire a work of art by the other. Davierwalla selected an enigmatic 1962 oil on canvas painting by Padamsee, which depicts the portrait of a woman set against a gestural landscape. In exchange for this painting, Padamsee chose a beautiful 14-inch 1961 bronze sculpture by Davierwalla titled Fleurs du Mal. These works, which stayed in the artists' respective collections for much of their lives, represent a special connection of friendship and respect between two great artists, and feature in Saffronart's Summer Online Auction on 24 - 25 June 2020.
