Nature Rules in Oakridge’s 4th Annual Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques Auction

Snowy landscapes, stormy seas, and awesome waterfalls dominate the scene in Oakridge Auction Gallery’s 4th annual Fall Asian Fine Art & Antiques auction, scheduled for September 19-20, 2020 at 10 am EDT each day.

The two sessions, beginning with Ceramics & Works of Art on September 19 at 10 am ET, followed by Chinese Paintings & Calligraphy on September 20 at 10 am ET will feature several long-anticipated works of Chinese jade, porcelain, antique woodwork, painting, and calligraphy from Oakridge’s postponed Spring 2020 Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction.

Natural themes are evident throughout both sessions, such as in a Chinese Snow Scene Vase by He Xuren dating to the Republic Period, estimated at $30,000 – 50,000. He Xuren (1882-1940) was part of a group of prominent 20th century artists known collectively as the Zhu Shan Ba You, along with Liu Yucen, Wang Yiting, and Bi Botao. His porcelain snow scenes are distinctive for their reputed ability to convey a true sense of cold to the beholder. This bridge between nature and artisanry comes to Oakridge from a Philadelphia collection, brought to the United States from Hong Kong in the 1960s and 70s.

Fig. 1: Lot 299 Chinese Snow Scene Vase by He Xuren, Republic Period. From a Philadelphia collection, brought to the United States from Hong Kong in the 1960’s-1970’s. Estimated at $30,000 – 50,000 USD.

From winter landscapes, the auction progresses to the foamy waves of the sea in a Chinese Gilt Table Stand of 18 Luohan from the Qianlong Period, made of two gilded, cast bronze panels set in zitan wood. This Qing dynasty piece is part of the collection of General Xiang Hanping, known as the “Confucian General” for his dedication not only to military but also literary exploits. One side of the table stand shows the Luohan, or Arhats, protectors of the Buddhist faith, with mythical creatures, while on the other two sailboats cross a vast sea that stretches past the boundaries of the bronze plaque.

Session 2 showcases over 200 lots of Chinese paintings and calligraphy, with works by Zhang Daqian, Huang Binhong, and Wu Changshuo leading the lineup. Mountains, flowers, and lakesides rendered in classical and modern Chinese painting styles predominate, but most riveting is a Painting of Scholar by Zhang Daqian. The solitary scholar stands in the center of a mountain landscape before a roaring waterfall; his diminutive stature conveys without doubt the awesome power of the natural world and the relative unimportance of man. The painting dates to the autumn of 1934, when the artist was based in Suzhou and attests to the artist’s skill at rendering landscapes in the classical Chinese style.

September Lot 502.jpg

Fig. 3: Lot 502, Chinese Painting of Scholar by Zhang Daqian. Acquired at auction from Christie’s, New York in November 1990. Estimated at $35,000 – 45,000 USD.

Oakridge亞洲藝術秋季拍賣會

 

以雪域奇觀,壯闊海景和恢宏瀑布為主題的秋季亞洲藝術拍賣將於美東時間2020919日至20日上午10點在Oakridge拍賣行舉辦。

此次拍賣分為兩場,開始時間分別為美東時間919日上午10點的瓷雜拍賣,和920日上午10點的中國書畫拍賣。屆時我們將開槌令人期待已久的中國玉器,瓷器和字畫。

自然元素貫穿了此場拍賣,例如民國時期何許人的雪景瓶,估價為30,00050,000美元。何許人(1882-1940年)是「珠山八友」中的一員,與之齊名的有劉雨岑,汪野亭和畢伯濤。這件作品於196070年代從香港被帶到美國,在費城征集所得。

另一件備受矚目的拍品是乾隆時期銅鎏金「十八羅漢」「行舟圖」紫檀臺屏。這件清代作品是香翰屏將軍收藏的一部分。將軍不僅是一名書法家,也算是「半個詩人」,其所作詩賦,均很出色。桌子架子的一側顯示了十八羅漢,而另外兩艘帆船則越過廣闊的海洋,延伸至青銅斑塊的邊界。

第二場拍賣展示了100多幅中國書畫,其中包括張大千,黃賓虹和吳昌碩的作品。本場亮點為來自Hing Tong教授收藏多張中國書畫。Tong教授除了是國際知名的數學家以外,也酷愛中國傳統藝術。本批拍品,基本都是Tong教授在80年代至90年代初在佳士得和蘇富比拍賣得來。山川湖泊和花鳥魚蟲是第二場拍賣的主旋律,其中,最受關註的是張大千的《高士觀瀑圖》。高士孤身立於山間,面向瀑布。

您可以通過電話委托,缺席委托,或者在Liveauctioneer, InvaluableBidsquareArtfox平臺上加入我們。此次拍賣將通過Live Auctioneers進行現場直播,以使在當前全球環境下無法隨意出行的您能夠隨時加入我們。
