LONDON.- From 1st - 10th November Asian Art in London presents the fifteenth year of the celebration of the arts of Asia in the form of selling exhibitions at the galleries of specialist Asian art dealers and auctions at the major salerooms.

Delectable works of art created during the past five thousand years in countries across Asia will be on show for visitors to admire and to buy. Whether the most luxurious objects made for emperors, kings or shahs, or the more austere religious arts for Islam, Buddhism, Daoism, or indeed Shintoism or ancient Zoroastrian belief; the modern or the ancient; charming or the curious - the wealth and variety of the arts displayed for sale at some fifty galleries will attract collectors from all over the UK and some few thousand buyers from overseas.

The unrivalled expertise and knowledge of the participating dealers will showcase the ancient and modern arts from the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, the Himalayas and China, to Japan and Korea, while the auction houses offer works of art mainly from China, Japan and Korea. A presentation of imperial ceramics, royal miniature paintings, bronze and stone figurative sculptures, grand and miniature lacquer arts, jade, tiles, jewellery, textiles and furniture, gold and silver and a multiplicity of other materials - all will entice the senses of our visitors from the curious layman to museum curators, igniting their interest in Asian art or encouraging them to add works of art to their collections.

Running in parallel with Asian Art in London there is an extensive programme of cultural, academic and social events, arranged by museums, institutions and Asian societies. This partnership between the commercial and academic worlds will provide conferences, formal lectures and short talks on many Asian art topics. Exhibitions will take place at The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and The British Library - to this last there will be a special conference on the archaeology of the Southern Taklamakan.

The programme of events is still developing and will be published in early September in the special guidebook, published with maps and detailed entries of exhibitions and sales. In addition, the Asian Art in London website will continue to provide updates of forthcoming events and links to the participants and their own websites, which advertise their many and varied activities in the field of Asian Art.

For anyone with an interest in Asian Art, London is the place to be in November.
