Opening for bidding soon this month will be our first modern and contemporary art sales for 2023 and The Victor Shaw Collection of Chinese Jades: Online Part 1, which brings more than 70 pieces of jade carvings spanning from Six Dynasties (220 – 589) to Qing dynasty (1644-1991), mostly small pieces with refined craftsmanship and exquisite taste. Contemporary Discoveries takes the fantastical theme of “Down the Rabbit Hole”, offering a curation that seeks to unlock the many ways art can offer a form of escapism from the mundane realities of everyday life, opening up alternative worlds for the elsewhere and the otherwise. Modern Discoveries features a curation spanning the breadth of pivotal modern art movements and mediums, including a special section by Indonesian pioneer artists from “The Bandung School”.
Further sales highlights including exceptional lots from Distilled | Whisky + Moutai will be shared shortly.
