This season, Christie’s is pleased to present The John C. and Susan L. Huntington Collection, comprising works of art from across the Himalayas and South Asia.
Noted scholars in the fields of Buddhism and Asian art history, Susan L. Huntington and her late husband, John C. Huntington, made immeasurable contributions to the scholarship of the field over the course of four decades as professors at The Ohio State University. Many of the works in their collection are published in their seminal works, including The Circle of Bliss and Leaves from the Bodhi Tree, representing their passion and scholarly interest in every work they collected.
Highlights from the collection include a fifteenth-sixteenth-century Tibetan Vajravali mandala painting, an inscribed Pala-period stele of standing Buddha, and an idyllic painting from the late eighteenth-century ‘Bharany’ Ramayana series.
Further works from this collection will be offered in a concurrent online sale,
