Truly great art collections reflect truly great personalities. Sir Joseph Hotung assembled a large family of art works from different places, periods and media that lived in his residence in congenial harmony. They share a rare quality and beauty, an unassuming nobility and an unquestionable eminence and as such are simply material witnesses of Sir Joseph’s character, discernment and style. The opposite of ostentatious, Sir Joseph was a naturally impressive personality, who radiated a dignity that made conversations stop when he entered a room. His spirit, connoisseurship and his style will make ‘The Sir Joseph Hotung Collection’ one of the coveted provenances for works of art.

The Sir Joseph Hotung Collection will be divided into four sales, two sales in Hong Kong on 8-9 October, and two sales in London on 7-8 December.
