WESTPORT, CONN. — Westport Auction delved into a boutique Indian art sale on March 20, offering eight lots from a New Canaan, Conn., estate. Rising to the top of the auction was a 71 ½ by 37 ½-inch painting by Maqbool Fida Husain (India, 1915-2011), which rose to $240,000 including buyer’s premium. Husain was a founding member of the Bombay Progressive Artists’ Group in 1947. The eight paintings had been purchased directly from certain Bombay and London galleries, who represented the artists in the 1960s. The eight lots had a cumulative gross of just over $560,000.
