There’s not a lot of sales info coming out of the India Art Fair but a few hints are filtering through the media. Neha Kirpal spoke to Overseas Indian while others hinted that a Hirst Skull was bought:
She said galleries from Spain and Britain like the Lisson Gallery found buyers on the first day Wednesday.
An insider divulged that a “sculpted skull by Damien Hirst was purchased by an Indian collector” while leading Kolkata-based art auctioneer Vikram Bachhawat made enquiries about another.
“I want to buy a Damien Hirst but I am trying to figure out the modalities. The space and the international collection are great,” Bachhawat said.
