Asian Art in London 2010

Date: current - Saturday 13th November
Venue: Asian Art in London, 32 Dover Street, Mayfair, London W1S 4NE

Asian Art in London – the annual event that uniquely brings together the capital’s leading Asian art dealers, auction houses and institutions – returns this November.

More than 40 specialist Asian art dealers, the major auction houses and the leading art institutions will join together to present an unrivalled selection of works dating from antiquity to the present day.

During the 10 days, London dealers and auction houses hold their most important Asian art sales, along with evening receptions, lectures and museum exhibitions at locations all over London. Asian Art in London attracts collectors, curators and scholars from around the world and, with the current interest in Asian Art strong, the event will attract keen international buyers.

Among the rich variety of Asian art on offer from over 20 countries will be Indian paintings, enamels and jewellery; Islamic tiles; bronzes and sculptures from the Himalayas and South East Asia; Chinese porcelain, jade and textiles, Korean art and Japanese lacquer, screens and netsuke.
Works of art to be presented at this year’s event will include: A boy Maharaja of Indore in Durbar, Central India (Indore), circa 1850, provenance Ismail Merchant, (Simon Ray Indian & Islamic Works of Art); An archaic Bronze Wine Vessel and Cover (hu), Middle to Late Western Zhou, 10th-9th century BC (Eskenazi Ltd); a work by Yao Jui-chung (b. 1969) Dreamy: puzi puzi, 2008 (Goedhuis Contemporary); and a Chinese porcelain blue and white deer and pine vase, Kangxi, 1662-1722 (S Marchant & Son).

The Antiques Trade Gazette will continue with its generous sponsorship of the Asian Art in London Awards for ‘an outstanding work of art’. Associated Foreign Exchange (AFEX) will also continue their support of Asian Art in London for the fourth year running.

This year the Victoria and Albert Museum will be hosting a symposium on Buddhist Sculpture on 8 and 9 November bringing together 15 leading scholars in the field of Buddhism and its arts.
