Art History in the News: British love for Chinese objects still going strong.

“IF A single auction could encapsulate the crazy, competitive world of bidding for Chinese treasures, it was a sale of fine Chinese art at Bonhams in London on May 13th.

The consignors of the first 61 lots were the heirs of Jack Rose, an English collector whose widow died last year. Half of these were carved pieces of jade, many dating as far back as the 16th century. A number came with an exceptional provenance having been sold to Rose by Sydney H. Moss, one of London’s great post-war dealers.”
