EYE/EAST is a sale that is sweeping in scope, ranging throughout the entire Asian continent and spanning through 5000 years of history. With 250 works encompassing modern and contemporary Asian art, Chinese modern and classical paintings, and Chinese works of art, the cross-category sale showcases a multifaceted assemblage. Yet all of these works resonate in their shared origins, springing forth from the three systems of thought: Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. While the tenets of these philosophies are manifestly expressed in Buddhist sculpture, scholar rocks, and archaic bronzes, so are they reflected in modernist and contemporary works such as Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita’s Printemps, Sofu Teshigahara's 'Dragon' folding screen or contemporary scholar Tung Chiao’s calligraphic works.
EYE/EAST presents an unmatched showcase of Eastern aesthetics with works from the Neolithic period to the present day, with estimates ranging from HK$5,000 to HK$1 million.
