The market for Chinese art and antiquities has been booming with objects exceeding their high estimates and collectors vying for market-fresh pieces with esteemed provenance. Yet when we talk about the Chinese Market, about what and whom are we specifically referring? Where are the buyers from, where are the sales taking place, and what works are most valued in the market?

The logistics of buying Chinese art is also complex, with import and export restrictions as well as the prevalence of frauds and fakes. This one-day course will examine the Chinese market from a variety of perspectives, with lectures on the sales, collectors, and legal issues as well as talks on the taste of collectors and what is most valued in Chinese art and antiquities
