Fine Art Asia 2019 is recognised by the international art world as the most distinguished annual fine art fair in the region. Founded in 2006, the fair attracts leading Hong Kong and international galleries, and provides an unrivalled platform for art and antiques in Asia. As usual, Fine Art Asia 2019 spans 5,000 years of cultural history, showcasing museum-quality Asian and Western antiques, jewellery, antique silver and timepieces; Impressionist, modern and contemporary art.

Director of Fine Art Asia 2019 and Ink Asia 2019, Andy Hei said, “The art market in Hong Kong continues to develop apace, with support from the government and creative initiatives by the industry. As always, our aim is to create a professional platform for the art market in Hong Kong, and to promote cultural exchange between East and West...”

JWWA will present, among others works of art, this remarkable plate characterised by a very detailed painting of fine quality. This circular plate has a slightly everted rim and is decorated with fine overglaze enamels of the famille rose palette. The centre depicts a wealthy man seated on a veranda observing a lady breastfeeding a young boy, another boy, and various servants engaged in different tasks relating to the production of rice and silk. In the foreground, three male servants are seen winnowing the grain, whilst a fourth servant is threshing the rice. A further lady looks after silk threads drying next to the main building. This composition is framed by a gilded border of flowers and leaves. Three lobed medallions on the rim are finely painted with a bird perched on a colourful branch with flowers and leaves.
