Asia week is here once again. The week will begin on March 14th and end on March 22nd. The entire week is dedicated to Asian art. Multiple auctions, dealers and museums all around NYC will be focusing on Asia. The major auction houses that will be having Asian sales will be Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Bonhams, Doyle and Igavel. Some of the many sales categories will be Chinese art, Japanese Art, Indian Himalayan and Southeast Asian Art. Jade, porcelain and bronzes are expected to bring big bucks this year at auction. Many auction lots are estimates at over a 1/2 a million dollars. Some of the extremely rare lots may even bring over a million dollars.
A great number of International buyers will be in town for the sales. People will be visiting from all around the world to buy the rare antique Asian items. However, China seems to be the country that has the buyers with the deepest pockets. It will be very interesting to find out if the Asian market is still as strong as it has been.
This fantastic week is not just about auctions sales. It is also about educating people on Asian art and its history. You can see multiple lectures and displays all over the city.
