This November Sotheby’s London Important Chinese Art sale brings together a wide range of Imperial porcelains, ceramics and works of art ranging from early dynastic periods to the 20th century. Many of the works presented in the sale have been hidden in English and European private collections and are fresh to the market. Among the highlights are three magnificent Imperial porcelains of the Yongzheng period led by a wonderful rare famille rose charger from a European noble family, a magnificent large Ge-type moonflask from an Irish private collection and an exquisite Ming-style blue and white vase formerly in an Austrian collection. A large group of classical Chinese furniture from a European collection, paintings by modern masters lead by a Scenery of Huanghan by Li Keran (1907-1989) from an English collection, as well as a strong group of paintings by Lin Fengmian, and an early work by Zhang Daqian from the collection of a former Dutch ambassador to China present another focus of the sale. The auction will also feature a wonderful group of Tang sancai and blue-glazed ceramics, among these a rare figure of a blue and amber-glazed buffalo, formerly in the collection of Susan Chen, and a small collection of Song black and white wares from a German private collection.
