The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a private preview of Sotheby’s Hong Kong Spring Sale of Chinese Works of Art with Nicolas Chow. Nicolas will guide members through this season’s group of exquisite imperial porcelains from the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong reigns. Highlights include both monochrome and enamelled wares, such as a celadon-glazed meiping and a rose-pink enamelled ‘chrysanthemum’ dish from the Yongzheng period.
Nicolas Chow is Chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and Worldwide Head and Chairman of the Chinese 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.
Registration at 9:15am. Members are reminded that as the preview takes place before the public are admitted, this event is strictly limited to current members only. A limited number of places are available, and pre-registration is required. Drop-ins will not be entertained. Members are further reminded that photography is not ordinarily permitted.
