Japanese Works of Art from AntiquitySouth Kensington – Christie’s is pleased to announce the second annual sale of Asobi: Ingenious Creativity – Japanese Works of Art from Antiquity to Contemporary at South Kensington on 15 October 2014, during Frieze week. From its inception to the present day, there is a joie de vivre that runs through Japanese culture and is apparent throughout the visual arts. Asobi gokoro, or ‘the playful heart’ manifests itself in an endless play with form, from wilful distortion to tongue-in-cheek humour; light-hearted treatment of serious themes to the juxtaposition of unexpected elements. The leitmotif of the sale, Asobi connects prehistoric ceramics, 16th/17th century screens and 20th century avant-garde painting, photobooks and photographs. Comprising over 170 lots of fine Japanese art which highlight the visual appeal, accessibility and relevance of Japanese art to contemporary collecting tastes, this dynamic sale is led by a magnificent panel by Shibata Zeshin (1807 – 1891), which is the only exhibition panel of this scale to come to auction (estimate: £600,000-800,000, illustrated above). Presenting a rich and varied array of opportunities for established and new collectors, with estimates ranging from £800 up to £800,000, the sale is expected to realise in the region of £4 million. A selection of highlights will go on view first at Christie’s King Street on 2 and 3 October, followed by the full pre-sale exhibition at Christie’s South Kensington from 11 to 14 October.
