Katsura Yamaguchi, International Director, Japanese and Korean Art said: “A diverse group of buyers actively competed for works from the Meiji period, with the hanging gourd vase leading the Japanese art portion of the sale. The selection of prints from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, as well as screens and lacquer works also performed strongly.
Heakyum Kim, Specialist, Korean Art added: “The Korean art section was led by a rare massive white porcelain jar, which achieved $1,203,750 and was purchased by a foundation. There was also global participation for works by modern artists, such as Park Sookeun and Kim Whanki paintings from private American collections.”
