On Easter Sunday, we will have a chance to preview exhibits from Sotheby’s Hong Kong Spring Sales 2010 with Nicholas Chow and Denise Chu, specialists who will guide us through galleries featuring among others, Fine Chinese Ceramics and Contemporary Asian Art. This year’s sale will once again bring to the market exceptional treasures of high quality and provenance. Both Nicholas and Denise will educate and entertain us with stories about some of these special treasures before its auction. Participants are welcome to view the other galleries independently afterwards.
Nicholas Chow is the International Head of Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art. A key figure behind many successful theme sales focusing on Imperial works of art, he has brought to the market landmark collections such as the recent Legacies of Imperial Power – Qianlong Imperial Seals from The Estate of Emile Guimet (October 2008), Masterpieces of Chinese Precious Metal Work – Ming and Qing Imperial Gold (April 2008), Important Chinese Art From the Collection of a Parisian Connoisseur (April 2007), and Visions of Enlightenment – The Speelman Collection of Important Early Ming Buddhist Bronzes (October 2006).
Denise Chu graduated from Wellesley College with a double major in Economics and Classical Civilizations followed with a Master’s degree from Stanford University majoring in East Asian Art History. Since then, she has been actively involved in the art world, with working experiences in many major cities including Hong Kong, Beijing, Taipei, Tokyo, New York and Athens.
