The Oriental Ceramic Society is pleased to announce a special preview of highlights from Sotheby’s Autumn auction led by Nicolas Chow, Chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and International Head and Chairman of the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art Department. Among the highlights is the sale of two Qianlong porcelain masterpieces: an imperial falangcai bowl, and an exceptional famille-rose reticulated ‘fish’ vase. In addition to these highlights, the auction will present works from the private collection of imperial porcelain and jade of the late Sir Quo-Wei Lee. There will also be two themed sales dedicated, retrospectively, to the aesthetics of Song dynasty ceramics and to Qianlong period historical works of art.
Nicolas Chow is Chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and International Head and Chairman of the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art Department, orchestrating auctions with a focus on ceramics and works of art from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Mr. Chow joined Sotheby’s in 1999 and has been responsible for leading the Chinese art market across the Asia Pacific region since 2003. In 2006/07 he took over global oversight for the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art departments.
