Sotheby’s presents the mid-season sale of Scholarly Art from the Collection of Mr and Mrs Gerard Hawthorn. Known for his eclectic and expansive scopes of interest in Chinese Works of Art, Gerard Hawthorn had, over the years, amassed sizeable collections of bamboo, Yixing stoneware and bronzes. These are categories which have gained long overdue traction in comparison to their jade and ceramics counterparts, which have for the most part, embodied the canon of Chinese Works of Art collecting in the West in the past.

Auction: 31 MAY

In tandem with this great collection is the Chinese Art sale, which constitutes fine selections from several private Hong Kong collections, in particular, a selection of scholarly items from the Peony Collection. The sale includes an assorted array of classic ceramics examples from the Song, Ming and Qing dynasties, huanghuali furniture, and Ming and Qing jade animal carvings and jade snuff bottles.

Auction: 31 MAY & 1 JUN

All works will be exhibited for public viewing from 25 – 30 May, 2018.
