Live Auction & Online Library Sale | March 2023
Tour | Starting 5 October
For nearly forty years, J. J. Lally & Co. presented exceptional Chinese works of art to collectors, connoisseurs and museums worldwide. Established in 1986, the gallery was at the forefront of a pivotal moment in time, when New York City emerged as an important centre of Chinese art. Situated in the jewel-box gallery in the Fuller Building on 57th Street, J. J. Lally & Co. became known as the intimate space where Chinese masterworks could be admired, contemplated and studied in the tradition of China’s ancient literati. Carefully planned exhibitions accompanied by catalogues with in-depth scholarly research defined the impeccable reputation of the gallery and the esteemed dealer who created it. In the following years, this dedication to quality and scholarship led to the placement of important objects in top museums and collections across the globe.
Christie’s is honoured to present the landmark sale of J. J. Lally & Co. in March 2023 in New York. The sale will include 138 lots of Chinese ceramics and works of art, and will be complemented by an online sale of the iconic gallery library. See our press release for tour information.
