The Asian Art department opened in 2011 when Isabelle Bresset asked the international specialist Philippe Delalande to assist her and take charge of the authentication and valuation of the Asian works of art. Backed by a long and worldwide experience, Philippe Delalande is highly considered by the Asian collectors and regarded as one of the utmost experts in the field. Assisted by Xinhao Bu, he then helped Artcurial to firmly put the Asian Art department on the map.
The Asian Art department has developed strong relationships with worldwide collectors and dealers providing them with the most reliable source of expertise and advice. The works of art benefit from an appropriate and elegant presentation in the catalogues with large illustrations enhancing the quality of each piece and the seller can enjoy a secured transaction due to a strict control policy.
Every season, sensational results turn on the spotlights on the very dynamic and unpredictable Asian Art market and its different domains such as Chinese porcelain, Buddhist art, archaic bronzes, jades, traditional paintings and engravings, etc…from all over the East: China, Japan, Cambodia, India, etc…from the Antiquity to modern times.
Philippe Delalande had been working for many years with one of the Asian Art’s top dealers in France, Jacques Barrere, when he joined Christie’s to run the Asian Art department in Paris. 12 years later, he took charge of the Asian art department for Europe at Sotheby’s. He has been a consultant for Artcurial since 2012.
Isabelle Bresset, auctioneer in charge of the Asian Art department, has initiated Artcurial’s Hong Kong sales in 2015 and 2016, helping to secure Artcurial presence in the region.
From 6th to 9th September, Lempertz will exhibit a preview of key lots of African and Oceanian arts at Artcurial that will be then offered for sale on 25th January 2023 in Brussels.
Artcurial was pleased to present the sale of Sanyu, Brush Drawings on June 9th. Composed of 45 drawings from the Jean-Claude Riedel Collection, this set highlights the delicate work of this modern calligrapher.
