Western and Eastern art are closely linked. They have influenced each other for thousands of years, from the ancestral exchanges of the Silk Road, through wars to the arrival of the Internet and the modern world.
This market is supported by extremely active collectors.
Chinese objects made of porcelain, jade, lacquer, cloisonné enamels, hard stones, Buddhist figures in gilded bronze, paintings, scholarly objects and all objects related to the reigns of Chinese emperors, notably Kangxi (1662-1722), Qianlong (1736-1795) and Daoguang (1821-1850) are often highly sought after. Exceptional pieces or those with a prestigious provenance such as the Summer Palace can achieve record prices.
Japanese objects lend themselves particularly well to the collection because of their refinement: netsuke, manju, inro, but also objects relating to the life of the Samurai: the daito (long sword) and shoto (short sword), kokuza, kogai, or even the complete armor.
Modern and contemporary Asian art is not to be overlooked and some artists like SANYU (1901-1966), LIN FENGMIAN (1900-1991), ZAO WOU-KI (1920-2013), CHU TEH-CHUN (1920-2014), or Vietnamese painters of the Hanoi School such as PHAM HAU (1903-1995), LE PHO (1907-2001), MAI-TU (1906-1980), VU CAO DAM (1908-2000) and NGUYEN PHAN CHANH (1892-1984) have triggered the passions of collectors.
