Sotheby’s Inaugural Chinese Art Week – Beauty and Harmony of the Five Elements

November - December 2021 | Hong Kong

Sotheby’s inaugural Chinese Art Week features a stellar line-up of ceramics, stone carvings, bronze sculptures, paintings and works of art dating from the Neolithic period to the present day. We look at the highlights through the framework of the five elements – water, fire, wood, metal and earth. As one of the core concepts in cosmology, it is instinct in Chinese art, works that span thousands of years of history, and embodying age-old ideals of beauty, harmony, and proportion.
