Market

At a recent Christie’s sale in New York, an elaborate bronze and mixed-metal hanging vase from the late 19th-century sold for $339,750. Christie’s has a very strong Japanese Art department, and also recently sold a rare white porcelain jar for $1,203,750. Contemporary Japanese Art also does well amongst other Contemporary Asian Art sales. Two pieces from Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, ‘Life is Only One’ and‘Submarines in Girl’ sold for HK$7.8 million and HK$1.5 million respectively in May 2013.
