James Orange was one of the founding partners in the long-established architectural firm in Hong Kong, Leigh & Orange. He is also a collector of Chinnery and bequeathed works by Chinnery from his own collection to the Victoria and Albert Museum.


Orange wrote a number of works relating to Chinnery and his work, including the current lot on the collection of his friend, the broker Sir Paul Catchick Chater (1846-1926).


The Chater collection is one of the most legendary collections, which originally contained more than 400 works of art. The artworks were displaced during the Japanese occupation during World War II, of which only around 80 pieces were returned to the government by local residents and organizations.


詹姆士.奧朗奇是錢納利的忠實藏家,逝世後將十八幅錢納利畫作遺贈予維多利亞與艾爾伯特博物館。他曾為錢納利及其作品撰寫多本專著,更為其友人——著名股票經紀人吉席・保羅・遮打爵士編寫《遮打爵士藏中國通商圖:十七至十九世紀西方人眼中的中國、香港、澳門》一書。


遮打爵士珍藏海納逾400件藝術珍品,精深廣博,堪稱傳奇。這些珍寶在二戰日軍佔領時期不幸流散,最終只有約80件經民眾及各大機構歸還予政府。
