Art La Rosa dedicates a Department to the auctioning of oriental art, a strategic choice aimed at meeting the collecting needs of an increasingly discerning audience.
Scheduled twice a year, the oriental and Chinese art auctions of Art La Rosa Auction House boast such expertise as to represent a true reference point for enthusiasts of art produced in Asia and the most avid collectors of Chinese and Japanese art, Tibetan and Indonesian art, Buddhist and Indian art, Islamic art, and, more broadly, art from Southeast Asia.
Many categories of art fall under the common designation of oriental art encompassing a wide variety of styles and techniques, often influenced by the cultural, religious, and philosophical traditions of the region. Thanks to highly specialized staff in the evaluation and expertise of oriental art, the Oriental Art Department enriches our Auction House's sales offering with catalogs capable of eliciting emotions and enthusiasm, engaging both Italian and international audiences.
The selection of objects presented in oriental art auctions is the result of a targeted and careful selective research of the works that are proposed to us. Oriental art auctions often feature rare items and artworks created by the most important Chinese dynasties, including paintings, bronzes, decorative objects, furnishings, and everyday items, porcelain and bronze vases, jars and snuff bottles, ceramics, majolica, and Celadon porcelain, utensils, figurines, paintings, drawings, books, manuscripts, sacred sculptures and sacred objects, icons, textiles, and carpets, ancient art, corals, and sculptures in various hard stones.
The typological variety of objects included in the catalogs of oriental art auctions can also be attributed to different manufacturers from the 19th and 20th centuries, from Nepal to India, from Tibet to Persia, from China to Japan. Among the top lots of our Chinese art auctions, we recall some excellences that have achieved exceptional results at auction: the Gilt Bronze Sakyamuni Buddha with Vajra, sold well above the initial estimate, and the Chinese Ming Dynasty vase, which literally exceeded the pre-auction base price. Our experts offer a free and non-binding evaluation service for works in the field of oriental art.
