Spring 2002 Exhibition & Sale
March 18 - APril 20, 2002
Kaikodo Spring exhibition and sale for the year 2002 was on display in the New York gallery from March 18 onward. This exhibition includes 35 unusual Chinese ceramics, bronzes, and porcelains, as well as 50 old master Chinese and Japanese paintings. Kaikodo’s strong offerings in the latter category include an important set of three large 16th century paintings of “The Three Purities,” the major Daoist deities, and a beautiful Song period “Flower Basket.” The vital Ming-Qing transition is represented by works from such well-known masters as Sheng Maoyeh, Cheng Sui, Gong Xian, and Wang Hui.
A generous selection of classic Song ceramics includes well-known black, white, and celadon wares and such rarities as a lovely Yaozhou celadon jar with foliate mouth. The later ceramics include a grand early Ming blue-and-white meiping with a rearing dragon on one side and a fantastic diving phoenix on the other, both in white against a cobalt ground.
