Auction: Fri 2 Dec - Tue 13 Dec 2022

34-35 New Bond Street, W1A 2AA HOTUNG | 何東 The Personal Collection of the late Sir Joseph Hotung | Part II: Online

Mon-Fri 10am-5pm

The late Sir Joseph Hotung (1930-2021) collected with an unusually powerful combination of both ‘heart’ and ‘eye’, allied to a strong intellectual focus on the meaning and importance of a piece of art. The decoration of his London home became, as a result, an elegant blend of a Chinese scholarly mind with the aesthetic of an English gentleman that might be said to describe Sir Joseph himself in life.


 


Following the hugely successful series of auctions in Hong Kong, Sotheby’s is honored to introduce the second part of his remarkable collection which celebrates his lesser-known passion for Western fine and decorative art, coupled with a wonderful array of Asian works which Sir Joseph combined in perfect harmony forming the backdrop of his life in London.
