Art, Life and Love:
The Collection of Nwabisa Xayiya
Sunday, 31 October at 11am
20 October to 1 November
In Johannesburg this October, we are honoured to present Art, Life and Love: The Collection of Nwabisa Xayiya, a single-owner collection auction showcasing the cultivated taste and style of the late patron of the arts.
Comprising over 300 treasured examples of modern and contemporary art, the sale is underscored by a story of commitment and passion for art, and the companionship in collecting between Nwabisa and her husband Mikki Xayiya.
The auction will offer best of class examples by great modernists as well as exciting contemporary pieces.
The full auction collection will be divided into two parts, giving bidders two separate opportunities to participate in the auction. The Live Auction will see 100 lots of exclusive highlights from the collection included in a catalogue sale going under the hammer in a live, physical and live-streamed auction on Sunday 31 October 2021 at 11am, and the remainder of the collection will be included in an Online-only Auction opening on Wednesday 20 October and closing on Monday 1 November.
