Asian Art

Created in 2011, the Asian Art department benefits from the expertise and international reputation of Philippe Delalande. Alongside Shenying Chen, he has reinforced Artcurial’s position and influence in this field, guaranteeing the authenticity and quality of the pieces presented.

The department maintains privileged links with the most important collectors, guaranteeing them the highest standards of expertise. At the same time, sellers are assured of the utmost attention in the presentation of their collections – the marketing, the highlighting of the value and the securing of the highest prices at auction.

The market for Asian art has evolved rapidly over the years, with spectacular auctions highlighting the great specialities: porcelain, Buddhist sculptures, ancient bronzes, jades, paintings and prints from all regions of the Orient – China, Japan, Cambodia, India, etc. – from Antiquity to the present day.

Its growth is also driving bidders to fight for these remarkable objects, resulting in some impressive bids: in 2018, a bust portrait of Toshusai Sharaku fetched €616,600, well above its initial estimate, and in 2020, a grey limestone statue of a Bodhisattva was sold for more than €1.3m.

Artcurial’s specialists are at your disposal for free and confidential valuations of your objects and works of art from the Asian continent.
