Blue Magpie Brooch
Anna Hu was the first contemporary Asian jewellery artist to have a signature piece—the China Red Magpie Brooch—on permanent exhibition at The State Historical Museum of Russia. Lot 1709 is a rendition paying tribute to the Blue-and-White Flower-Bird-Motif Circle-Squared Plate from the National Museum of History, extracting the essence of Eastern arts, applied to the Blue Magpie Brooch. Blue-and-white porcelain, a classical Chinese motif combined with Western colour palettes interpreting the idyllic scene from poems, composed of the delicate decorations and exquisite branches from nature inspired by the Jesuit missionary and painter at the imperial court of China, Giuseppe Castiglione, showcases the beauty of China in a western perspective, which is also captured by Anna Hu's idyllic creation.
