Asian Art in London 2013

Now in its sixteenth year, Asian Art in London 2013 taking place from 31 October – 9 November 2013, is firmly established in the international art world’s calendar. This ten day autumn ‘festival’ brings together sixty Asian art dealers and auction houses  in a series of selling exhibitions, auctions, lectures and seminars, all reflecting the extraordinary diversity and beauty of Asian art past and present.Large numbers of overseas visitors come to London during this 10-day period, attracted by the opportunity to buy outstanding Asian works of art, both collectable and decorative.

Items on offer include art works from the Near East to Far East via the Indian sub-continent and Southeast Asia, ranging in date from antiquity to the present.  Textiles play a relatively minor role in the overall presentations (and rugs no role at all), which lean towards more conventional areas of painting, sculpture, ceramics and furnishings, but the likes of Francesca Galloway, Jacqueline Simcox and Simon Ray can always be relied upon to present textiles of interest and merit.
