Asia Week New York September 2022 at Bonhams

Sales Results
Bonhams concluded its auctions for Asia Week New York this autumn, which included The Joan and Ted Dorf Collection of Chinese Snuff Bottles and Archer Rings on September 19, Chinese Works of Art and Paintings on September 19 & 20, and Fine Japanese and Korean Art on September 21. Bonhams' Madison Avenue saleroom presented the finest works from Chinese ceramics and paintings to Japanese hanging scrolls and lacquer that date back from the Neolithic period to the 20th century. With renowned expertise in the field and international reach, Bonhams has consistently delivered fresh-to-the-market choice works of art to buyers in the US and around the world. This year, Bonhams saw more foot traffic to the galleries than in previous years, many of which were interested in the chance to preview highlights from The Cohen & Cohen Sale of Important Chinese Export Ceramics that will be offered for sale during Americana week in January 2023.

All sales were 99% sold by value, totaling $5.5 million. A good portion of lots sold to US buyers and the majority of the top lots sold to buyers in Asia. The top lot of the sale was Calligraphy in Various Scripts by Zhang Daqian (1899-1983), an impressive four-panel calligraphic work which soared well beyond its estimate selling for $214,575. Ode to the Sound of Autumn by Pu Ru (1896-1963) featuring the beloved verse by Ouyang Xiu also had a spectacular performance selling for $201,975, ten times its estimate, and was the second most expensive lot at Bonhams during Asia Week.
