蘇富比欣呈9月紐約亞洲藝術週,誠獻中國藝術珍品、印度、喜馬拉雅及東南亞藝術,精彩紛呈。拍品來自多個世界知名收藏,包括一組巴里·馬克林收藏的重要青銅禮器及造像及布魯斯• 代頓與司路德伉儷收藏之中國藝術珍品。全部拍品於9月17日起在紐約蘇富比藝術空間展出,拍賣會在9月17日至29日期間陸續舉行。

「中國藝術珍品」拍賣蒐集一組馬克林收藏的青銅重器。上世紀七十年代起,巴里·馬克林在來往亞洲的商務之旅中收集各地高古陶瓷,逐步建立自己的收藏。他隨後專注於東亞及東南亞古董,開始收集該地區的高古青銅、石雕和建築物殘件。在青銅器收藏家的身份以外,馬克林還是一位工程師,從事五金製造業數十年,因此非常欣賞中國古代青銅器製造、鑄造和鎏金的複雜工藝和先進技術。

蘇富比榮幸呈獻出自布魯斯• 代頓與司路德伉儷收藏的精選藝術品。代頓伉儷長年支持公益事業,並且是明尼亞波利斯美術館的捐助人。他們樂善好施,明辨善鑑,品味獨到,孜孜求索,幫助該館集成美國國內數一數二的百科全書式藝術品博藏。這次上拍的藝術品反應二人深具文人修養的收藏品味,涵蓋文士珍玩、中國書畫、瓷器、銅器、家具、其中包括一件清雍正 檸檬黃釉蓮式盤(估價8萬至12萬美元),以及一件《大清乾隆年製》款 青花御題詩烹茶圖闊底壺(估價8萬至12萬美元)。乾隆帝醉心茗茶之道,據稱曾就沏茶、賞茶寫詩逾兩百首。本品壺身繪高士於亭內賞茶,身旁童子侍奉,背面書乾隆御製詩。

蘇富比9月「中國藝術珍品」領銜拍品是一套金地粉彩敬佛五供,估價60萬至80萬美元,乃此類瓷器首次完整一套見諸拍賣場,殊為難得。無論形制,成組之器皆罕見於中國藝術,金地粉彩瓷器在乾隆一朝更為少見。今年亞洲藝術週的精彩拍品尚有一件罕見的《大清乾隆倣古》款 青玉雕雙魚盤,並刻乾隆御題詩(估價20萬至30萬美元),以及一尊銅鎏金燃燈佛坐像,施轉法輪印(估價25萬至35萬美元)。其他焦點拍品包括兩件銘文極爲重要之青銅禮器:一件西周或宣王時期仲義父作新客鼎,及一件商末犬祖辛祖癸鼎,一件出自洛克菲勒家族收藏的明宣德/正統青花纏枝番蓮紋瓶,一件五代至北宋十世紀定窰盤口瓶,一對清乾隆剔彩高士山水圖挂屏,一件清乾隆北京清乾隆 銅胎北京畫琺瑯西洋人物圖鼻煙壺等。

「印度、喜馬拉雅及東南亞藝術品」拍賣呈獻喜馬拉雅造像珍品,其中以一件重要西藏中部銅合金文殊菩薩造像(估價40萬至60萬美元)領銜 ,此像斷代十二至十三世紀,由紐約Albright-Knox 藝術畫廊委託蘇富比拍賣,是詮譯尼泊爾藝術傳統之西藏銅合金造型的早期罕有作例,展示文殊菩薩年青時期之王者風範,從中可見佛教美學風格。材質、鑄造風格及菩薩造型顯示當時西藏藝術兼收並蓄,如中世紀東印度和克什米爾鮮用鎏金的傳統等等。

來自馬克林收藏的拍品以一尊犍陀羅灰岩菩薩立像(估價25萬至35萬美元),是犍陀羅藝術風格的優秀作例。此藝術風格大約從公元一世紀到五世紀在印度次大陸西北部盛行,以融合印度和希臘藝術傳統為特色,而這件精美的雕塑是其中經典範例,亦因以薩珊王朝皇家紋飾為靈感而更顯獨特。其他焦點拍品並包括一組十四世紀南印度毗濕奴、斯立德维、布德维造像(估價20萬至30萬美元);一幅十五世紀西藏大黑天唐卡(估價3萬至5萬美元);一尊尼泊爾瑪哈拉克希米像(估價4萬至6萬美元);以及一冊88頁耆那教典籍(估價4萬至6萬美元),與其他喜馬拉雅、南亞及東南亞藝術珍品同場亮相。

網上專場方面,蘇富比榮幸呈獻「瓊肯:中國藝術珍品」網上專場拍賣,拍品涵蓋玉雕、早期陶瓷、瓷器、銅器及文士珍玩。史蒂芬・瓊肯三世收藏無數中國瓷器、玉器、銅器、書畫和佛教造像珍品,涵蓋範圍極其廣泛,在美國能與其比較者寥寥可數,是二十世紀世紀重要收藏家,享負盛名。

布魯斯• 代頓與司路德伉儷收藏的藝術精品,亦將亮相 9 月 17 日至 28 日舉行的網上拍賣「汲趣:亞洲藝術珍品暨布魯斯・代頓及司路德伉儷珍藏」。本將專場以文人文化為主,致敬布魯斯・代頓及司路德伉儷及其珍藏,其中精品包括文人雅玩,中國書畫,陶瓷,銅器及家俱。拍賣其他亮點包括來自美國重要私人收藏的鼻煙壺、奧爾布賴特-諾克斯美術館收藏亞洲藝術品以及精選印度與東南亞藝術品。

「博古:亞洲藝術珍品」網上專場將於9月17至29日欣然呈獻逾200件中國藝術珍品。拍賣包括高古陶瓷、明清瓷器、玉雕、銅器、造像等,琳琅滿目,精彩紛呈。精選拍品包括一組由Elaine Schiffman (1922-2000) 夫人於上世紀70至90年代集成的青花佳瓷,著名企業家兼慈善家Simon F. Rothschild (1861-1936) 收藏清代及民國瓷珍,以及佛羅里達州私人收藏明清雅瓷及高古陶器。
