From the 30th of September to the 3rd of October, Fine Art Asia took place in Hong Kong, attracting major Asian and international collectors, dealers and connoisseurs. Jorge Welsh Works of art showcased an important collection of Chinese export porcelain, China trade paintings and Japanese lacquers, representing some of the best cross-cultural works of art from the 16th to 19th centuries made for the West.
Highlights included a Chinese painting with a view of Canton seen from the Pearl River, from the Guangxu period (1875-1908), ca. 1885-1890, and a large pair of Chinese porcelain fish bowls decorated in overglaze famille rose enamels and gold from the Qianlong period (1736-1795). The selected pieces included Chinese porcelains for the domestic market, Japanese lacquers and Indoportuguese art.
"Over the last few years, the number of our friends and collectors based in China has grown substantially. Therefore we feel our presence in the Fine Art Asia Fair will enable us to better support all our local clients, collectors and museums active in in the fields of our expertise, particularly Chinese export porcelain ad works of art”, said Jorge Welsh and Luísa Vinhais, founders and directors of the gallery. “It will also be an opportunity to meet new collectors and reinforce relationships with our long terms clients, scholars and museum representatives not only those interested in adding to their collections but also those with whom we may collaborate in research and publishing projects."
