‘Like Gauguin in reverse’: how Beatriz Milhazes went from the Tropics to Europe and back again, before taking on the world
Christie’s Art d’Asie auction in Paris features a curated selection of works from private European collections spanning more than 3000 years of Asian art. The sale showcases Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain from several private European collections, jade carvings, cloisonné enamels, lacquer and classical and modern Chinese paintings. Highlights include a rare imperial cinnabar and ochre lacquer ‘dragon’ circular box and cover from the 15th century, an important pair of zitan cabinets from the Qianlong reign, a rare and magnificent turquoise-ground yangcai imitation cloisonné dish, Qianlong mark and period and a green-ground Famille rose vase from the Daoguang reign. We will also present another part of the Galerie Duchange collection including porcelains, a Coromandel screen, Buddhist art and scholar’s objects as well as an important selection of imperial porcelain, lacquer boxes and cloisonné enamels from a French private collection never offered on the market before.
Our Art of Asia online sale will take place from June 27thto July 12th with a common viewing.
