Descripción general


Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery will present part of the Ferdinand M. Bertholet Collection in the titled exhibition and feature over 100 exceptional masterpieces, including paintings, objects, ivory and ceramics, from the Han Dynasty (206 BC–220 AD) to the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911 AD). Bertholet, the renowned collector and artist, began his artistic journey at a young age by assembling the world’s largest collection of erotic art. He was particularly inspired by the paintings of C. T. Loo’s collection, which depict not only the alluring sexual images but also the fashion and social perspectives of the period.

Please note that due to the explicit nature of some images, this exhibition is suitable only for adults aged 18 and above and may offend.
