Centuries of Chinese Ceramics

One of the most significant national art forms – and one that has long had tremendous influence abroad – Chinese ceramics are valued for their aesthetic brilliance and technical mastery. Collectors can trace 4,000 years of China’s artistic, political and economic history during the Important Chinese Art auction on 13 September, when a brilliant array of forms and techniques is offered at Sotheby’s New York. With highlights that range from exuberant sancai-glazed Tang dynasty pottery to a variety of celadon Longquan wares and from classically elegant Ming blue and white to the striking jewel-like enamelling of imperial Qing porcelain, the esteemed tradition of Chinese ceramics is on full display.
