Sovereign is an organic expansion of India’s 50-year-old Pundole Art Gallery and Pundole’s auction house - in the UAE, and into the Middle East. The owner and principal curator of Sovereign is Dadiba Pundole.
The new gallery was established with a dual purpose: to present the best of Indian art to audiences in the Middle East, and to popularise Middle Eastern art (especially that of Emirati artists) with Indians and international clients.
Sovereign will continue to strengthen the trusted Pundole legacy - by helping avid private collectors build and boost their art collections, and by guiding amateurs who wish to start with small steps. Further, the gallery will assist international clients with reselling art in the UAE. The gallery will also address the needs of corporate buyers – banks, companies, investment firms and hotels – by sourcing specific pieces that match respective styles and budgets.
Besides hosting exhibitions and events, the gallery and the curator are well-positioned to serve as an advisory on Indian art to curators, museums and galleries in the region.
Just as at Pundole Art Gallery, Sovereign will focus on the quality of art, and not price or size
