Collected in America: Chinese Ceramics from the Met

This September, Christie’s New York will present a selection of over 600 works from the revered institution

This September, Christie’s New York will present Collected in America: Chinese Ceramics from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a selection of over 600 works dating from the Song to the Qing dynasties that provides a fascinating window into traditions of collecting Chinese ceramics in America from the end of the 19th century through the 20th century.

A broad range of categories are represented, including Song dynasty Jun wares, blue-and-white porcelains from the Ming and Qing dynasties, and domestic and export wares from the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong periods. The auction also boasts distinguished provenances such as Samuel Putnam Avery and John D. Rockefeller Jr.

The sale will take place on 15 September. An additional selection of ceramics from the museum will be offered in an online auction, which will be exhibited concurrently with the live sale in our Rockefeller Plaza galleries. The proceeds of the sale will benefit the Met’s Acquisitions Fund.
