Among the stand-out textiles in Recent Acquisitions offered by Thomas Murray during Asia Week New York is this 18th century palampore (bedcover) decorated with mythical lions, large hamsa geese, purple and red elephants and Mughal-style flowers. Inspired in part by 17th century Dutch botanicals, no other examples illustrating this iconography are known today. Made from cotton for the Indonesian market, it measures 3ft 4in x 7ft 10in (1.02 x 2.39m) and is priced in the ‘mid $30,000s’. Murray’s exhibition will be available to view online and in New York by appointment.

Those travelling to the Big Apple include dealers based in England, India, Italy and Japan, as well as other parts of north America.

Among them, Japanese gallery Shibunkaku makes its AWNY debut with The Colours of the Post-war Japanese Abstract Arts, a collaborative show with New York dealer Joan B Mirviss at the East 78th Street gallery.
