Auction Results "Sotheby's Asia Week series of auctions in New York have been a triumph across all areas." Commented Henry Howard-Sneyd, Vice Chairman, Asian Art at Sotheby's, "The $14 million Ming Dynasty Buddhist Sutra led the week of auctions achieving the top price of any sale at any auction house. Now established as a major event on the art world calendar, Asia Week draws collectors from around the world at the highest level, with the result that we have seen outstanding prices for more than 3,000 years of Asian Art."
A much-anticipated sale of Asiaweek New York 2015 will be a Chinese Art sale of almost 300 lots. This will be the first time in many years that a Saturday sale is being held. The sale will include a collection of later Chinese bronzes from the collection of Paul Freeman, snuff bottles from the collection of Lolo Sarnoff, jade carvings, porcelains, textiles, and classical and modern Chinese paintings and calligraphy from various owners.
Building on the successes of our Important Chinese Works of Art and Fine Classical Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy Sales, and the growing demand for Chinese art, we continue to offer property from private collections that have not been seen on the market for many years. All categories of Chinese art are well-represented in this sale to be held on 21st March, with estimates starting at around $500.
Please note that Session II will have additional viewing time until 2:00 PM.
