佳士得犍陀羅佛教造像專場十大焦點成交 | Devotion in Stone: 10 Highlights in Gandharan Masterpieces from a Private Collection

「此組犍陀羅塑像也許是有史以來最重要的私人收藏犍陀羅藝術作品。」佳士得紐約亞洲藝術部專家崔仕廷(Tristan Bruck)感嘆道。9月23日,佳士得紐約隆重舉辦私人珍藏犍陀羅佛教造像專場,所呈現的珍藏見證犍陀羅古國豐富多樣的文化與宗教特色,甚至包括一尊幾乎與真人等高的灰片岩菩薩像,數十年來令各國學者為之傾倒。而最終本拍場亦取得傲人成績 —- 成交總額高達USD 13,878,750。

“This collection of Gandharan sculpture is perhaps the most important privately owned group of Gandharan art ever to have been assembled,’ says Tristan Bruck, specialist in Asian art at Christie’s in New York. On 23 September 2020, Christie’s organized an auction featuring Gandharan Masterpieces from a Private Japanese Collection. This remarkable collection brilliantly showcases the confluence of cultures and religious ideas that blossomed in the ancient region of Gandhara. It even displays a rare and magnificent gray schist triad of Buddha Shakyamuni with bodhisattvas, one of the most important Gandharan sculpture to come to market. As a result, the total proceedings have successfully reached up to USD 13,878,750.

犍陀羅古國位於絲綢之路交通要道,是連接南亞、中國和地中海的橋梁,橫跨開伯爾山口(Khyber Pass),位於今日的阿富汗東部及巴基斯坦西北部,乃文化、商業及早期佛教藝術重要的交流中心。「每一種文化都將自身的宗教和文化傳統融入當地。繁榮發達的貿易也帶來多種其它創作靈感。」崔仕廷表示。香港藝訊現為你總結佳士得2020私人珍藏犍陀羅佛教造像專場的十大焦點成交!

Strategically located along the Silk Road trade routes linking South Asia, China and the Mediterranean, the ancient region of Gandhara — which straddled the Khyber Pass in what now spans eastern Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan — was an important centre of culture, commerce and early Buddhist art. ‘Each culture imparted its own religious and cultural traditions on the region,’ says Bruck. ‘Other sources of inspiration were also introduced through the great volume of trade that passed through the area.’ HK ARTION has now shared with you 10 selected masterpieces from the auction!
