MING: THE INTERVENTION OF IMPERIAL TASTE
14 March 2017, 10am

Asia Week commences with the special themed auction Ming: The Intervention of Imperial Taste. An exploration of Ming porcelain and the diplomatic role it played over 300 years, the sale celebrates the breadth and boldness of the Ming potters’ new and innovative designs and techniques. From famed blue-and-white porcelain in a variety of shapes and decoration, to monochromatic and wucai-decorated works, this sale is a fête of the innovation and refinement of Ming porcelain. One of the highlights from the sale is An Exceptionally Rare and Large Fine Blue and White Reserve-Decorated ‘Peony’ Dish, Xuande Mark and Period (estimate $1/1.5 million). Measuring 15 ¼ inches (38.6 cm) in diameter, this impressive work of art is illustrative of the mastery of potting and glazing achieved by the Ming in the early 15th century.

IMPORTANT CHINESE ART
14 March 2017, approximately 10:30am and 2pm

The spring sale of Important Chinese Art is a comprehensive survey of the field, with over 250 lots representing all major categories. The sale is led by two exceptionally rare imperial tea caddies from the Yongzheng period. The first, in blue and white, is painted with dragons (estimate $1.3/1.5 million) and the second is applied with a celadon glaze (estimate $800/1,200,000). A Large Bronze Tripod Censer, Qianlong Mark and Period, headlines a strong group of metalwork (estimate $300/500,000). Ceramics and works of art from private collections, including the Collection of Joan Oestreich Kend, are particularly impressive. One such example is of Two Extremely Rare Famille-Rose Enameled Porcelain Figures of Ksitigarbha, Qianlong/Jiaqing Period (estimate $150/250,000).

MODERN & CONTEMPORARY SOUTH ASIAN ART
14 March 2017, 10am

This season’s Modern & Contemporary South Asian Art auction is made up exclusively of works from private collections. Admirers of Raja Ravi Varma, considered the pioneer of portraiture in India and whose Portrait of a Young Woman In Russet And Crimson Sari achieved twice its low estimate last March, will be enchanted by Untitled (Damayanti) (estimate $500/700,000). Embodied with qualities typical of the artist – his fascination with traditional dress, his elevation of traditional beauty – the appearance of this oil painting on the auction market offers collectors a rare opportunity to acquire a significant work by this Indian National Heritage Artist.
