Asian Art specialist
Chiswick Auctions is pleased to announce a new Oriental & Asian Art specialist, Lazarus Halstead.
Lazarus has been actively involved with Chinese art for several years with extensive knowledge of ceramics, jades, bronzes, paintings and more. He has a strong academic background having studied Chinese art at Oxford University and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese having spent time living in Beijing. An active member of the Oriental Ceramic Society, he has a track record of making important discoveries including two 20th century ink paintings by Xu Beihong and Qi Baishi which together sold in 2014 for more than £850,000.
Chiswick Auctions has had many notable successes with Chinese art reflecting the new resurgence of interest in the Orient. We have a proven record of sourcing interesting and important pieces including a Ming bronze Bodhisattva which recently sold for £116,000 including buyer’s premium. The establishment of a new department with four specialist sales a year will only strengthen our ability to capitalise on the appetite for Asian art in London and internationally.
We are accepting consignments for our next specialist Asian art sale which is taking place on Tuesday, 10th February 2015.
There are a wealth of important antiques and collectables from the Far East waiting to be discovered. If you have interesting items and would like a free valuation please bring them in or email a photograph with your contact details to email@example.com
