Gagosian, in collaboration with Gisèle Croës Gallery, Brussels, is pleased to present Treasures from the Chinese Past on the occasion of Asia Week New York. The exhibition will feature treasures from Ancient China that have been selected for the five-day event, including a selection of some forty outstanding bronzes, considered the signature pieces of Gisèle Croës Gallery.
The highlight of the exhibition is a you wine vessel from the Western Zhou period (1050–221 BC), which features an eight-character inscription on the bottom. The provenance of this you is remarkably documented, as its successive owners are well-known figures including Pan Zuyin, a high-ranking Mandarin; C.T. Loo, a famous early twentieth-century dealer; and Edward T. Chow, a legendary collector-dealer of the postwar years, whose famous clients included King Gustav of Sweden.
Other spectacular pieces include a jue vessel from the 12–11th centuries BC, boasting a prestigious provenance going back to 1948, a monumental bronze jian from the Spring–Autumn period (770–481 BC), and a spectacular animal-shaped zun vessel from the Late Eastern Zhou dynasty (770–221 BC).
Beautiful pieces of Buddhist statuary will also be on view, including a breathtaking Northern Qi head (550–577 AD), a monumental stone head of Avalokitesvara from the Northern Qi dynasty (550–577 AD) to Sui dynasty (581–618 AD), and a sculpture from the Song dynasty (960–1279 AD) representing Guanyin. Scholar’s rocks and a remarkable ensemble of rootwood furniture with striking extravagant shapes from the eighteenth century are among additional treasures found in the exhibition.
As a visual counterpoint to the ancient objects offered by Gisèle Croës, Gagosian will present drawings by Richard Serra, and two lacquer works, including an Anish Kapoor sculpture and Roy Lichtenstein’s Screen with Brushstrokes (1986).
