From today until Thursday 24 September, you can bid on a unique piece of art. Each piece has been generously donated and funds raised will support Tibetan communities at this critical time.
This is the first of our two-part Art Tibet auction. It showcases work from a diverse pool of established and emerging artists including Tenzing Ringdol, a contemporary Tibetan artist whose work spans painting, sculpture, drawing and collage. Tenzing’s work is exhibited around the world including at the Metropolitan Museum for Art in New York. Lydia Corbett, Picasso’s former muse and now a renowned artist in her own right, has also donated a piece to the auction. Or, if satirical art is more your thing, you can bid on a bespoke cartoon by Simon Pearsall of Private Eye fame.
We are also delighted to include an exquisite etching of Potala Palace by Jean-Pierre Burkhalter. This piece was donated by Joanna Lumley and is extra special as the etching is from a photograph taken by Joanna’s grandfather Colonel Leslie Weir in 1930.
This auction really is a unique and exciting opportunity for you to buy a special piece while also funding our work with Tibetan communities.
If you miss out this time, don’t worry. A second, bigger Art Tibet auction is coming later in the year with a very special piece donated by Antony Gormley!
