Raqib Shaw – Garden of Earthly Delights III
10′ x 15′ (305 x 457 cm)

“The Garden of Earthly Delights III” by Raqib Shaw, born in India in 1974, was shown last year at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and had a high value of 600,000 pounds from Sotheby’s. It sold at four times its top estimate, taking 2.4 million pounds pre-commission and setting a record for the artist, whose collectors include hedge-fund managers. His previous auction record was $144,000.

This work was inspired by The Garden of Earthly Delights by the Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch.
