Sotheby's Scholars

Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury sold their Modigliani painting ‘Portrait de Baranowski’ through Sotheby’s in 1998 to found the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Art and Cultures. To commemorate this sale, Sotheby’s agreed to sponsor the Sotheby’s Senior Scholars grant, which bring eminent Japanese (and other overseas) scholars to the UK to promote Japanese art studies in the country.
