With a selection of works on paper, pottery, jade figures, and important cultural artifacts, Freeman’s Collect: Asian Arts has something for new and established collectors alike. The June 23 sale features works from across Asia: Chinese porcelains and jades, Japanese vases and writing boxes, Vietnamese decorative objects dating back to the 12thcentury, and works from Tibet, Korea, and India. Collectors of Chinese art will find several striking works of painting and calligraphy on fans or silk, including by Liu Zhan and Cao Kejia; the sale also features a fine selection of Japanese enameled Satsuma pottery vessels. Lush, detailed examples of Tibetan thangkas—paintings on fabric depicting important Buddhist deities—populate the auction, presenting unique and accessible collecting opportunities.
The exhibition will be on view by appointment at our 1600 West Girard Avenue location from June 19 to June 22, by appointment only
