Catalogue Note

Born in Shanghai, China, George C. C. Ho educated himself as a young man by traveling extensively and acquired a taste for the finer things early in life. His charisma fostered friendships with influential people around the world. His family was in the coal business. He branched into the shipping business before leaving China in 1949 for the relative safety of Hong Kong. In 1959, he relocated his family to New York where he resided until his death at 98 in 2017.

Mr. Ho amassed a fine collection of Chinese paintings, calligraphy, jewelry, furniture and other objects of art. He had a deep appreciation of everything Chinese, especially old and classical pieces. His efforts in collecting began in Hong Kong and intensified after retirement through his association with experts at international auction houses. He enjoyed the research and auction processes as much as the acquisitions themselves.
