An auction catalogue corresponding to the January 25, 2020 auction at Sotheby's New York. "The collection being offered in Triumphant Grace: Important Americana from the Collection of Barbara and Arun Singh, represents a passion for early furniture, paintings, and decorative arts shared during a fifty-year marriage. Many people will know the couple's familiar, friendly faces from attendance at antiques shows through the years. They have built a diverse collection of items from New England, daiting primarily from the mid-eighteenth through the mid-nineteenth century, interspersed with ancient carvings and artwork from the husband's native India. Among the collections are single examples and sets of chairs (Arun's favorite furniture form); case pieces (most with carved features associated with Connecticut); furniture attributed to known makers such as Nathan Lumbard; tall-case and dwarf clocks; Chinese Export porcelain; primitive portraits by Ammi Philips, John Brewster, Zedekiah Belknap, and others; miniatures, and more. Their collection is unified by its elegance of form." - quoted from introduction.
