On the block

ARE you one for collectibles? If so, then this is a heartening news for you. Bowerings Fine Art Auctioneers has finally set the wheels rolling for its very first auction in India. According to Patrick Bowering, deputy chairman, they will auction about 130 pieces of art including paintings, sculptures, pictures and other collectible items. "We would like to make this clear that this is not the best or the biggest sale from us. It is simply a reflection of what we have in store for Indians,'' pointed out the Bowerings staff. While they hope to be able to test the market response through the pre-festival timings, Bowerings is treading cautiously in a market not known for being art savvy.
