Crafted Landscapes: The Ankarcrona Collection of Japanese Lacquer and Asian Works of Art
10 September - 1 October 2020 | Online

Christie's will present, Crafted Landscapes: The Ankarcrona Collection of Japanese Lacquer and Asian Works of Art, an online auction from 10 September to 1 October. Sten Ankarcrona (1861–1936) began collecting Asian works of art upon his first visit to Japan in the late 1880s—a golden age of travel and European collecting. The young aristocratic Swedish naval officer became fascinated by the breadth of artistic production in the region and continued to add to his collection back in Europe. In 1923, by then an admiral, he was appointed by the King of Sweden to travel back to Japan on a special mission, where he spent two months making many more purchases. This love of Asian art was later passed down to his children and grandchildren, who have enriched the ensemble into the early 21st century. Comprising fine Japanese inro, beautiful lacquer incense boxes (kogo), delicately decorated writing boxes (suzuribako), Chinese porcelain and other exceptional objects, the collection symbolizes the Ankarcrona family passion and tradition of collecting.
