From 10–24 October, Christie’s is proud to present The Ann & Gordon Getty Collection: Chinese and Japanese Works of Art and Textiles, part of a series of landmark auctions of the Getty’s storied San Francisco interior. Proceeds are set to benefit the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation for the Arts, dedicated to the support of arts and science organisations.
This curated sale of Chinese and Japanese works of art draws upon the Getty’s fascination with the historical interplay of European and Asian culture. Like the Silk Road that connected East and West, in the Gettys’ collection there is a through line of mutual exchange between objects that look both forward and back. This online auction features Chinese Export porcelain and mirrors, Chinese furniture, lacquer and textiles.
