A painting by artist Akbar Padamsee that was bought in 1960 for Rs 1,000 has been sold for Rs 19.19 crore. Experts suggest that this is the largest increment in the price of an Indian artwork. An anonymous bidder took the 4.3*12 foot canvas painting of a Greek Landscape at Saffronart’s Evening Sale in Delhi.
For over five decades, the 1960 plastic emulsion on canvas was owned by Krishen Khanna, Padamsee’s contemporary and fellow artist.
