We all know and understand the immense growth second-hand items have seen over the past few years. The same phenomenon has also affected the world of watches. Although Christie’s and Phillips do not currently have a presence in India, that does not mean that we are lagging behind. Thanks to Astaguru, India’s only high-end auction house, the country has slowly opened up to the idea of ​​auctions, especially watch auctions.

Conceptualized in 2008 with the sole purpose of creating a safe and secure platform for conducting online auctions for modern Indian and contemporary art, Astaguru has established itself as the go-to destination for all auctions. It all started with a focus on modern and contemporary Indian art, but over time the auction has added a range of other segments which include jewelry and fine silver, watches, textiles, memorabilia celebrities, rare books, numismatics, philately and vintage cars. The latest category added to their diverse portfolio is furniture and home decor.

With an eye for detail and a unique range of offerings, Astaguru has a deep focus on research-based conservation. We caught up with Jehangir Readymoney, a luxury watch consultant and specialist at Astaguru auction house, and a watch collector himself, to get some insight into how the auction works. We also discussed the future of the auction house in a growing market like India and the impact of globalization in the world of auction houses (especially for buyers and clients).

Excerpts below:

Can you shed some light on how Astaguru works? As the only premium auction house in India, how did it all start?

Jehangir Readymoney: Watch auctions in Astaguru initially started on a smaller scale with a few pieces. Since my arrival, we have started to organize and evolve different types of quality watches to bring them to a platform of a more international standard. We’ve covered the Holy Trinity of watchmaking (Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe) and Rolex as well as other brands. We also aim to understand the love for niche watches while integrating vintage into part of the program and introducing it to our customers. It is ultimately our buyers who have a certain love for both modern and vintage art. So there must be a whole range of watches in our auction and that is what we aim to offer our customers in Astaguru.

Astaguru Watch Auction House

When it comes to watch auctions, how far do you think the Indian public has evolved? Is it growing?

There are two parts to this question. India and the general watch buyer is one of them. The second will be the general Astaguru buyers we are addressing. Starting with India in general we are a country that has traditionally been in the older mindset when it comes to watches where you had that stereotypical uncle with his Day-Date 36mm decades ago . That said, a smaller proportion of the country has started showing love for Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe and other brands. For example, the classic Golden Ellipse – is a fairly common timepiece in the Indian subcontinent. Although the Calatrava is a common piece, the golden ellipses that reach us are at a higher volume. This is the original way of thinking of the traditional watch buyer in India.

When it comes to customer evolution, if we can go back five years to when the steel sports watch was just making its introduction, we see that Instagram has been the biggest catalyst when it comes to to influence and create brand awareness. The influence of knowledge and scholarship on the watches of almost every small part of the population has started to swell and intensify as everything is quickly available on our phones. In my day, I used to go to forums long before Instagram, do my research, and talk to different communities and watch groups. Now in India we have over 100 real and functioning watch groups.

Astaguru Watch Auction House

Regarding the audience of Astaguru, our buyers travel abroad a lot and know the brands very well. They’ve had this knowledge for a while, but some of the newer and even older marketers have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge through social media. So he played a key role in both cases and I think it brought the notoriety and erudition of the watches to the highest level. In my opinion, we are in the golden age of watches.

How do you manage to strike a balance between the two audiences you mentioned?

The fact is that we must constantly be aware that our clientele evolves at the same time. The evolution of the market, let’s say there are a few independent brands and it has been in the Indian market for quite some time with niche buyers who are our customers. Despite the growing popularity, the introduction of independents at this time and in this setting may not be wise because the awareness is not there. When it comes to including a watch in the auction, there are a few things to keep in mind. This includes longevity, design, and how the brand will evolve or eventually die out. There are many things to keep in mind. So constantly changing over time and the evolution of what we introduce in our auctions has always been studied, evaluated and then implemented. There are a number of vintage buyers I have to go to, there are a number of people who want trendy pieces like the Hulk and the like. which we cater to and then there are classic buyers who are only there for specific sizes, novel metals and specific complications. All of this is organized and included in our catalog.

    Astaguru Watch Auction House

What challenges do you face when it comes to raising awareness about the world of auctions and vintage watches?

To be honest, it’s not necessarily a challenge for us, we’re almost looking forward to it. What happens is when a buyer is extremely knowledgeable about art and jewelry and has just gotten into watches we have a fantastic customer relations team who are happy to pass on information and knowledge to the customer. As head of the watch department, if there is a client who wants a particular brand or movement, I personally like to organize for them. We need to understand that this is a service and not just an auction house. It is over time that you assess which watch would be suitable for a particular buyer and have the ability to transfer it to the customer. It is very important that we guide and help them, it is not just a buying and selling service. This is how we take care of our customers.

    Astaguru Watch Auction House

Since many of our audiences are unfamiliar with a watch auction house or how this universe works, can you summarize the necessary points to keep in mind before buying from an auction house?

We have a period where we run advertisements that we plan to consign watches ahead of our auction several months in advance. Our known clientele, or partners or business partners or collectors come to us and consign their watches. As I mentioned before, there is a method to organize the auction and divide the types of watches we need for the buyers we have. Now, once we have made our selection, the watches go through a quality control process where an experienced watchmaker or specialist watchmaker (depending on the timepiece we have) will review the piece and ensure that everything is up to date. The authenticity and condition of the watch are carefully checked, then we start documenting all the parts. Once done, we review our internal procedures on how to produce our catalog and maintain it for presentation to our clientele.

Astaguru Watch Auction House

What are some of the things a customer should keep in mind before buying from an auction house?

Above all, watches are not an investment in any form, you have to buy what you like. Now, which part of the journey you’re in, whether it’s the beginning, the middle, or the end, depends on the buyer. If you were to buy a watch from an auction house, you should keep three things in mind; quality, condition and brand level to stick to the classics.

How do you see Astaguru growing in the future? What are your immediate goals?

Of course we would like to grow, we would like our presence to grow in India and internationally as well. In terms of growth, what we would like to see is market growth and more coins entering India. We would like to see most of the pieces from Astaguru as the main and upper echelons of watch auctions in India. We would like to grow in terms of the number of lots in our auction and we would also like to become very high value independents like FP Journe and Greubel Forsey etc. to gain more of a foothold in our brand.

What is an NFT: everything you need to know https://binggallery.com/what-is-an-nft-everything-you-need-to-know/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 07:11:39 +0000 https://binggallery.com/what-is-an-nft-everything-you-need-to-know/ GM: Good Morning, a standard greeting that NFT enthusiasts turned into insider code.

GM: Good Morning, a standard greeting that NFT enthusiasts turned into insider code.

WAGMI: We’re All Gonna Make It, short for the optimism — sometimes deserved, sometimes delirious — around NFT projects.

NGMI: I will not arrive there. An insult reserved for incompetent investors, fraudulent projects and enemies of the NFT in general.

Diamond needles: The ability to retain NFTs over the long term. If you can take early losses in hopes of a big payday, you have diamond hands.

Paper hands: The opposite of diamond hands: someone who bails and sells early.

PFP: Profile Image, used to refer to a collection of NFT-related images designed to function as Twitter avatars. (See CryptoPunks, Bored Ape.)

DYOR: Do your own research. Because Web3’s philosophy of self-sovereignty means there’s no safety net if you make a mistake, collectors are on their own when it comes to avoiding scams and finding the projects the most promising.

Mint: The act of transforming a digital asset – a JPEG of a penguin wearing a hat, a trance song, etc. – into an NFT.

ADO: Decentralized Autonomous Organization. Basically a club but with no central management. Members typically pool their crypto and make decisions about what to do with their funds, together.

CC0: A type of license that waives copyright and places an NFT’s art in the public domain.

4. What makes an NFT valuable?

Think of an NFT like any collectible: dead animals Jordans, Pokémon cards, taxidermy. Some items are simply rarer, which adds value. To find out more, we enlisted Kevin Rose, a tech entrepreneur, podcast host, and co-founder of Proof Collective, a private community of NFT collectors where passes traded for around 100 ETH each, and Moonbirds , instantly one of the best-selling PFP collections of 2022. – CC

QG: First, why did you get into NFT?

Kevin Rose: It was 2017, and it was a project called CryptoPunks. My friend said, “Here are these cute 8-bit characters you can collect on the blockchain. We can exchange them. I bought 10 of these. I think I paid £3 or £5 each and then forgot about it.

After a while there started to be more movement, so I put my head back up. The NFT standard had been [widely established]. Market places could exist. And there were all these native digital artists who only produced work on the blockchain. I said, OK…so there’s proven scarcity, and it’s all on-chain seamlessly. There is durability, so its quality will not degrade over time. I can transfer it easily. And there is a 24/7 liquidity market [ie. converting crypto to real cash]. There’s so much emphasis on crazy NFT prices now, and it’s not sustainable. But I know NFTs are 100% here to stay because it’s just better technology.

What makes a specific NFT valuable?

I don’t think it’s fair to put all NFTs in the same slice. If I buy a one-time XCOPY for £500,000, it’s because I know XCOPY is the Banksy of the NFT generation. He’s like any great artist, but I can’t collect his work any other way, because he has a very unique animated style that can’t be reproduced in non-digital form.

‘His strength is haunting and unmatched’: Painting once said to depict Marie Laveau sells for nearly $1 million https://binggallery.com/his-strength-is-haunting-and-unmatched-painting-once-said-to-depict-marie-laveau-sells-for-nearly-1-million/ Sun, 29 May 2022 21:00:51 +0000 https://binggallery.com/his-strength-is-haunting-and-unmatched-painting-once-said-to-depict-marie-laveau-sells-for-nearly-1-million/ ASHEVILLE, North Carolina — A portrait of a Creole woman commonly considered Louisiana’s famous voodoo queen Marie Laveau was auctioned off last week at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) for $984,000, which could be a record price for a Louisiana portrait.

ASHEVILLE, North Carolina — A portrait of a Creole woman commonly considered Louisiana’s famous voodoo queen Marie Laveau was auctioned off last week at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) for $984,000, which could be a record price for a Louisiana portrait. The portrait has been identified as “Rare Portrait of a Creole Woman”. It was estimated to sell for between $200,000 and $300,000.

The painting is not actually by Marie Laveau, although it has been widely used as her likeness. It has been used as an image identifier on sites like Britannica and Wikipedia and the image is also on tourist sites, t-shirts and book covers. The portrait is so ubiquitous that it is Laveau that most people have her as their image when viewing the voodoo queen.

Although the portrait is not actually of Laveau, everyone involved, including the auction house, the bidders, and the auction winner knew of the association. “This powerful, compelling and rare New Orleans portrait of a free woman of African descent,” said Brunk Auctions, which handled the sale, “has long been considered the iconic image of the Voodoo priestess Marie wash.

“He was shrouded in mystery and legend and lost to the public eye for decades, which added to the aura that surrounds him,” the description continues. “Her strength is haunting and unmatched, especially when you realize she was a free woman of color in pre-Civil War New Orleans.”

This portrait has been attributed to George Catlin (1796–1892), who was in New Orleans between 1833 and 1835. The portrait measures approximately 29 inches by 23 inches in a gilt frame. It bears a signature at the top right indicating “G. Catlin Nlle Orléans / mai 1837.”

The portrait’s provenance was established by Lisa N. Peters, an art historian hired by the auction house. The painting first appeared in the public eye around 1911, when a

Gaspar Cusachs via Louisiana Historical Society

former president of the Louisiana Historical Society, Gaspar Cusachs, lent the portrait to the Louisiana State Museum in New Orleans. From there, the portrait entered private collections, eventually becoming the property of a Florida family by inheritance.

The association of the portrait with Laveau seems to be the work of one of the intermediate owners. Simon J. Shwartz was a collector and the general manager and co-owner of the Maison Blanche department store. He married the daughter of one of the wealthiest philanthropists of the early 20th century in New Orleans. His father, Abram Shwartz, owned a fine arts store. Such was his stature that in 1926 Shwartz sold an 1803 flyer that caught the attention of The New York Times.

“The misattribution of artist and sitter speaks to the circumstances surrounding the history of portraiture at the turn of the 20th century,” said Susan J. Rawles, Elizabeth Locke Associate Curator of American Decorative Arts at the VFMA. The Wild Hunt. “The social place of Creoles was hotly debated in Louisiana following the Louisiana Purchase, inspiring artistic depictions of Creole peoples. Among the most legendary mixed-race women was Marie Laveau (1801-1881), a woman of French, Native American, and African descent who assumed celebrity status and consequently became the alleged subject of nearly every portrait depicting a free woman of color. . ”

Meanwhile, there were political pressures to conform New Orleans to the “New South”. “In the 1880s,” said Rawles, “New York cotton industrialist John H. Inman led a coterie of northern literary and artistic luminaries to New Orleans and elsewhere to promote, through Harper’s Weekly, the benefits arising from investments from the North to the South. This pressure boosted the esteem of northern artists. William E. Seebold, for example, invited northern artists to exhibit and lecture at his gallery.

This is where Shwartz comes into the story. He acquired the painting in 1922 as part of a collection of books and other artifacts from the Louisiana State Museum. “Shwartz presented the portrait as ‘Marie Laveau’ by George Catlin (1796–1872), who was the most famous painter of natives and Creoles to practice in New Orleans.

“Curiously enough,” Rawles said, “the inscription on the painting includes the date ‘May 1837,’ which happens to be the date Catlin opened his ‘Indian Gallery,’ the collection of paintings of Aboriginal people he created and which toured various towns on the East Coast.The artist and subject were celebrated in reports by journalists invited to view the portrait in Shwartz’s home, reinforcing the attributions of days gone by despite the inconsistencies between the proposed portrait and the known work of Catlin.

There is, however, a twist. The portrait had been on display at the Cabildo in Jackson Square when, in 1926, Schwartz was forced to sell much of his collection for financial reasons. “Much of the archival material was purchased by Edward Alexander Parsons (1878-1962) who, as a member of the board of trustees of the Louisiana State Museum, loaned the collection to the Cabildo,” Rawles said. “But it wasn’t until 1933 that Shwartz sold Portrait of a Creole woman wearing a Madras Tignon’ at Parsons for $126.

Later in the same year, the title of the portrait read Marie Laveau or Choctaw Woman. Its name was changed in the museum manual by then-curator Robert Glenk.

In yet another twist, the portrait was copied by Louisiana Museum conservator Frank Schneider for his permanent collection, likely to document the painting after Cusach’s original loan expired. The copy, however, was later damaged and kept by the Louisiana Museum.

The painting may not be Catlin’s work. “Despite some disparities in technique,” ​​says Rawles, “our tentative attribution is to the French-trained artist Jacques Amans, who was active in Louisiana from about 1836/7 until 1856. The attribution is based on the evidence of a model of the painting that matches other known works.

As for the person sitting in the image, this person remains unidentified.

The intrigue around the image, and Marie Laveau’s celebrity power, contributed to the extraordinary price at auction. Yet the portrait is of crucial importance. “The rare success of the portrait,” says Rawles, “rests in the combined powers of a highly skilled technician and an engaging – albeit elusive – subject whose pose and costume – especially the haircut – project the unique culture of Civil War region of the United States shaped by French and Spanish colonial history.

“This culture,” she continued, “hitherto absent from VMFA’s American collections, was both distinct and in tension with its Anglo-American counterpart. VMFA has long sought examples of work representative of Spanish and French colonial influences to expand and complicate its American narrative.

We will all soon have the opportunity to see the picture for ourselves. The VMFA said the portrait will be viewable once it has been assessed by its curatorial department, received any necessary treatments, and then goes through a process to be approved for rotation.


The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is located in Richmond, Virginia at 200 N. Arthur Ashe Boulevard.
