LONDON.- Following the record-breaking £17 million auction of Chinese art, and the unprecedented auctions of Japanese art, held at New Bond Street in May, director of Asian Art Colin Sheaf has rapidly enhanced the Group’s specialist Chinese and Japanese specialist staff in Europe mainly but also in China and Australia.

In New Bond Street, the established team of three Chinese art specialists has been joined by two Chinese-national recruits whose principal languages include Mandarin, Shanghainese, Cantonese, English and French. “Increasing the New Bond Street specialist team to five full-time staff gives us Chinese art and language expertise unsurpassed among European auctioneers and dealers”, commented Colin Sheaf. The new recruits include Gigi Yu and Helen Ho, educated in Hong Kong and London.

In Edinburgh, for the first time ever in a Scottish auction house, Bonhams has appointed a full-time Asian expert, Asha Edwards, to co-ordinate enquiries about consigning Chinese and Japanese art to London, Hong Kong and New York, and to increase the size and quality of Edinburgh dedicated Asian art sales.

In Paris, Leonore de Magnée has joined Bonhams as a specialist Asian art business-getter, the first whom the Group has appointed in Europe. This follows the appointment of Xibo Wang as the Chinese specialist based in Bonhams Beijing office; and the appointment of Yvett Klein as Bonhams first full-time Asian specialist in Australia, based at the Sydney auction centre.

“These strategic appointments will give us substantially enhanced abilities to source Asian art for our global auctions, and to develop closer relationships with Chinese clients in some of the most important new markets where Bonhams now successfully operates”, Colin Sheaf noted “At a time of great global demand for Asian art, we are focussed on increasing to market leadership our Chinese art sales in Europe, where we are already the leading auctioneers of Japanese art”.
