NEW YORK, NY.- From July 21 to 26, Bonhams New York and Los Angeles held four auctions of Asian Art – Fine Chinese Paintings and Works of Art, Fine Japanese and Korean Art including property from the Collection of Drs Edmund and Julie Lewis, Indian, Himalayan & Southeast Asian Art, and Refined Pursuits: Fine and Decorative Chinese Art. The top lot of the four sales was a Gilt Copper Alloy Figure of Shadakshari Lokeshvara, Khasa Malla, circa 1300-1350, which realized $956,075 from the sale of Indian, Himalayan & Southeast Asian Art. It was estimated at $200,000-300,000.

Edward Wilkinson, Global Head of Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian Art, commented: “The result achieved by the Shadakshari demonstrates that the market’s uninterrupted appetite for quality and rarity continues despite the challenges of travel restrictions. In addition, the second highest lot, a Late Chola, South Indian Figure of Parvati, was bought by a U.S. Museum for $212,575.”

Additional highlights included:

· From Fine Chinese Paintings and Works of Art, a pair of huanghuali continuous yokeback armchairs, Nanguanmaoyi, late 19th/early 20th century, sold for $206,325 (estimate: $10,000-15,000).

· From Refined Pursuits: Fine and Decorative Chinese Art, a group of three polychrome enameled porcelain plaques, late Qing/Republic period, sold for $250,075 (estimate: $6,000-9,000).

Dessa Goddard, Director, US Head, Asian Art Group, added: “We welcomed our clients from all over world to our 'behind-closed-doors' auction and are delighted by the encouraging and solid prices achieved across the Asian art sales. We look forward to the next Asian Art sales in September in New York.”
