Christie’s announce auction of Part II of A Private Collection Donated to Benefit the University of Oxford

In April 2012 an extremely generous benefactor donated a very impressive group of Islamic and Indian works of art on paper to benefit the University of Oxford. Following the success of this sale, which realised almost £1.5 million, Christie’s is pleased to announce details of Part II of A Private Collection Donated to Benefit the University of Oxford which will take place on 4 October 2012. The full sale proceeds will benefit the University of Oxford and the Bodleian Libraries, where they will be used to fund a chair in Sasanian studies. Comprising 47 lots the collection includes works on paper from the Islamic and Indian worlds. The collection is expected to realise in excess of £1.5 million. This is a great opportunity for collectors to acquire extraordinary works and contribute to this philanthropic endeavor, supporting the world-renowned University of Oxford, England.
