Notez bien

[1Since Larasati’s first auction held on 30 April 2000 in Jakarta – Indonesia, the regional auction house’s reputation has grown rapidly for auctioning rare and emerging Indonesian as well as other Asian works at record prices. In 2003, Larasati marked a milestone in its pursuit to become a major player in the Asian market, with its entry into Singapore and becoming the first Asian-based auction house that crossed national borders.

Focused on featuring significant works of art and treating them as a kind of museum art, Larasati’s boutique collection platforms fine works by master artists from Indonesia, China, India, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines. Beyond just merely a matter of buying and selling art objects, Larasati is driven to enhance the appreciation and development of art in Asia.
