‘New Forms – Song/Yuan’
– Asian Art in London 2021 –
This exhibition to coincide with Asian Art in London focuses on the new and distinct shapes, forms and the often experimental glazes that emerged in the Song and Yuan dynasties and that we now associate with this period.
Highlights include a rare ‘Cizhou’ painted jar (Song/Jin dynasty) from an important Hong Kong collector, previously sold and published by Littleton & Hennessy Asian Art in 2003, an extremely rare reticulated ‘Longquan’ bottle vase (Yuan dynasty) from a private Asian collection and a rare ‘Longquan’ Guan-type censer (Southern Song/Yuan dynasty).
We again look forward to welcoming all our friends from the collector, dealer and auction worlds to London.

‘Later Chinese Bronzes’
– Asian Art in London 2020 –
We have great pleasure in presenting this small, select group of later Chinese bronzes during ‘Asian Art in London 2020’. Spanning the Song through Qing dynasties, this group is the product of many years of collecting as each has their own character and story.
During this challenging time for the world we pause to look back through pieces drawn from different periods of post-archaic Chinese history and hope these simple yet vigorous examples of bronze craftsmanship provide a little respite for the viewer.
This November we hope to welcome our friends from the collector, dealer and auction worlds and look forward to 2021 with renewed hope for a happier, healthier and more tolerant world.
