Forbes Asia;12/26/2005, Vol. 1 Issue 9, p106
The article presents information on actions of modern art collection from the Indian subcontinent.

For instance, the mezzanine auction room at Christie's at Rockefeller Center in New York was packed in September with well-dressed Indians ready to spend money. The day before at Sotheby's a smaller crowd had smashed the record for contemporary Indian art sold at auction. INSET: The Picasso of India.
