Two Extraordinary Tang Silver Vessels Formerly in the Renowned Collection of Carl Kempe at Christie's NY, 23-24 september 2021

Made during the Tang dynasty (618–907) for a client of elevated stature, perhaps even for a member of the imperial court, these handsome vessels of hammered silver—a bowl and a dish—were formerly a part of the famous collection assembled by renowned Swedish collector Carl Kempe (1884–1967) and thus claim a distinguished, even enviable, provenance. The vessels were ultimately inspired by luxury goods crafted in precious metals that were reaching Chang’an (modern Xi’an), the Tang capital, from ancient Iran via the fabled Silk Route,...

To compile a collection of Chinese archaic bronzes as comprehensive and varied as that of Barry MacLean is a remarkable feat. It is weapons and tools made of bronze that define the Bronze Age – as against the Stone or the Iron Age – but the repertoire of ancient China’s bronze casters was vast. To showcase their ingenuity and inventiveness is clearly what Barry MacLean had in mind, when he assembled this group. The classic ritual vessels and bells that were used in the ancestral ceremonies of the Shang (c.1600-1046 BC) and Zhou... [Lire la suite]
