Asian art dealers who wish they could be in two places at the same time

13/04/2012

AFTER a stunningly successful Maastricht the only words of regret I heard this year came from some of the dealers in Oriental works who very much wished the fair did not coincide exactly with Asia Week New York.

Most of the serious international buyers of Asian works converge on New York from March 15 to 25 and only a handful manage a short stopover at Maastricht en route.

Brussels expert Gisele Croes, the doyenne of Oriental bronzes, was just one exhibitor who misses showing in New York where she has so many clients and always does so well.

But she was not complaining and when I left was enjoying a superb fair with sensational sales on preview day. She even managed to squeeze in some Chinese customers before they went to America.

Meanwhile, I hear the New York initiative went extremely well with a top New York dealer in Chinese works James Lally declaring: “This was the best New York Asia Week we’ve seen for many years.” He sold 75 per cent of his catalogue, mainly to private collectors.

Buyers from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Mainland China were much in evidence.
