Inspired Themes: A Fine Selection of Chinese Works of Art

  • SALE 13075
  • London
  • 10 May 2016

Our King Street sale is comprised of over 80 lots spanning a broad period of Chinese art: from a bronze ritual food vessel, gui, dating to the early Western Zhou dynasty (12th – 11th century B.C.) to Mouse and Candlestick, a modern painting by Qi Baishi (1864–1957).

Many pieces in the sale boast distinguished provenance, such as a collection of jade and hardstone carvings acquired by the late Lady Evelina Behrens (nee Rothschild) in Beijing. Further highlights include a rare and large Ming dynasty (15th – 17th century) polychrome decorated wood figure of Guanyin, a 19th century silk embroidered Thangka depicting the Panchen Lama Lobsang Dondrup and a magnificent group of four gilt-bronze figures of Buddhist guardians dating to the 17th – 18th century.
