SET up in 2008,the online art auction house Asta Guru hosts its ninth auction this week,on Tuesday and Wednesday. The two-day event will see over 60 lots up for sale,comprising work by Modern Indian artists. Among those whose paintings will be available are MF Husain,SH Raza,FN Souza,Sakti Burman,Anjolie Ela Menon and Akbar Padamsee.

While some of the works that will be sold at the auction date as far back as the 1940s,others are more recent,close to five decades newer. The two highest priced paintings are by Husain and Raza.

At the auction house’s last event in February,works by some of the country’s best known artists were sold. For this week’s event,as in the past,all lots are available to view on the website,and the auction will close at 7.30 pm on May 15.
