On January 24, 2023 in New York, Bonhams presented Cohen & Cohen: 50 Years of Chinese Export Porcelain, a single-owner collection from the renowned gallery. Comprising of over 150 lots, the sale will primarily feature magnificent eighteenth-century Chinese porcelains including exceptional examples of famille rose jar garnitures, large ‘Chinese-taste’ enameled standing figures, rare ‘European-subject’ plates and figures, and massive Kangxi-period famille verte and blue and white dishes.
Why it matters: Cohen & Cohen成立於1973年，以經銷高質精罕的中國外銷瓷器而廣受推崇，亦曾為全球頂尖博物館及收藏家搜羅精彩臻品。Cohen & Cohen亦出版甚豐，其學術性展覽圖錄內容豐富，業界內首屈一指。是場單一藏家拍賣，策略性地與「美國文物藝術週」以及在紐約軍械庫（The Armory）舉行的冬季古董博覽會同期進行，這兩項重要活動一向備受全球頂尖中國外銷藝術品藏家關注。
Established in 1973, Cohen & Cohen is widely respected as handling the finest, rarest, and most beautiful ‘Chinese Export’ porcelains, fascinating wares created in China expressly to be sold to Westerners. They have sold outstanding examples to the world’s greatest museums and collectors in addition to publishing highly informative, market-leading academic exhibition catalogues. The single-owner auction is carefully timed to complement ‘Americana Week’ and the famed Winter show at the Armory, both prestigious events which traditionally attract the world’s leading collectors of Chinese Export art.
