Asian Art

 

The Asian Art boom is largely driven by growth in the Chinese economy, it is a dynamic and rapidly changing section of the market. Each year we conduct two auctions dedicated to the sale of Asian Art, which are firmly established in the international auction calendar and coincide with Asian Art Week in London, when many leading dealers and collectors flock to the UK.

The department is headed by Yexue Li, whose experience growing up in China has helped shape her expert knowledge and understanding of the current market. Yexue carefully identifies reign marks on Chinese porcelain, and glaze techniques to determine geographical influences, as well as religious references in order to accurately classify objects and works of art. Combining her subject knowledge with an extensive network of contacts across mainland China and Hong Kong has contributed to the rapid growth and success of Sworders Asian Art sales.

Yexue works closely with Luan Grocholski, an experienced Asian Art Consultant and one of the county’s leading authorities on Chinese and Asian works of art. Both are available for sales and valuation advice.

Sworders is now recognised as one of the UK’s leading auctioneers of Asian Art. To find out more about our forthcoming sales or talk further about potential consignments, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our specialist team.
