The Art of Stewardship: The Collection of Bruce Dayton and Ruth Stricker Dayton

New York | 21 September

This September, Sotheby’s is delighted to present a spectacular assembly of Chinese porcelains, scholar's objects, furniture and paintings from the Collection of Bruce Dayton and Ruth Stricker Dayton. With a concentration on the superb craftsmanship of the literati scholar, this collection amplifies and contextualizes the dramatic role the literati played in shaping Chinese history. Highlights include a group of imperial porcelains from the Qing court, including a blue and white hu-form ‘floral’ vase, an inscribed ‘Mount Hui Temple’ teapot and cover, both from the Qianlong reign, and a Yongzheng mark and period ‘lotus’ dish. Bidding opens 21 September 2021.
