Asian Art in London

Now approaching its end, Asian Art in London runs between the 5th and the 14th November and is a ten day celebration of the world's best Asian art. It brings together over sixty of the top dealers, major auction houses and museums for an annual festival of the finest Asian art.

It's the eighteenth year of the event in London, which highlights a wide range of antique and contemporary art from Asia, and exhibitions, lectures, gallery talks, collectors' talks, auctions, study days and performances will take place throughout the week.

Following the UK-China Summit in London last June, the 2015 UK-China Year of Cultural Exchange showcases the very best of British culture in China and vice versa. This year the Asian Art in London Gala Party celebrates this cultural exchange with support from the Chinese Embassy.

There is an Asian Art in London Award 2015, which shortlists 10 works of art from across the region, showcasing a wide range of materials and techniques. The prize will be judged by a committee including curators from the Ashmolean Museum, the Fitzwilliam Museum, and the Victoria & Albert Museum.

At Alfies we have dealers who stock a fantastic selection of Asian ceramics, sculpture and art.

Here are a selection of Horner Antiques' pieces. Michael of Horner Antiques has collected antiques for many years and has a keen eye for detail in oriental porcelain, glass, ceramics and collectables. He also sells a range of delicate English Sliver.
