NEW YORK, NY -- Scheduled during Asia Week New York, Doyle’s Asian Works of Art auction on Monday, March 19, 2019 at 10am will present the arts of China, Japan and Southeast Asia from the Neolithic Period through the 20th century. Offerings include porcelain, pottery, jade, snuff bottles, scholar's objects, bronzes, screens, furniture and paintings.

The Collection of a New York Connoisseur

Assembled over forty years beginning in the late 1960s, this remarkable collection reflects the personal and sophisticated taste of a true connoisseur. A highly educated and respected professional in clinical research, he was also a lifelong classical musician who played the piano and harpsichord for relaxation. His remarkable collection was acquired through purchases from E&J Frankel, Ltd. and other prominent dealers of Asian art. Highlighting the collection is a group of Buddhist gilt bronze sculptures dating from the 17th through the 20th centuries.

An artistic tradition used mostly for religious purposes, Buddhist sculpture is highly prized for its beauty and historic significance. A gilt-bronze Tibetan Lama from the 18th century, his hands in the position of the Dharmachakra Mudra, represents one of the most important moments in the Buddha’s life, preaching his first sermon after achieving enlightenment (est. $18,000-22,000).

Symbolizing fidelity and happy unions, a duck-form gilt-bronze censer depicts the bird standing in water. When in use, smoke emits from both its open beak and a coin-shaped aperture at its rear, representing wealth and prosperity (est. $8,000-10,000).

Property from a Private New York Collection

Highlighting Chinese porcelains from a private New York collection is a rare underglazed blue and iron-red fish jar, a Kangxi or Yongzheng period version of a type seen in the Ming dynasty. The finely potted jar depicts eight swimming carp, a traditional Chinese symbol of strength and perseverance (est. $20,000-30,000). From the same collection is a group of early wares, featuring a Dingyao carved lotus dish from the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127). This quiet and sophisticated ware is highly prized for the evenness of the creamy glaze over a delicately potted body, the incised lotus almost coming to life (est. $4,000-6,000).
