    Stunning Chinese Porcelain at Stunning Arts Gallery

    Most Chinese art categories are represented including jade carvings, furniture, jewelry and paintings. However, the strength is really with works of art and porcelain, with many of these objects having solid provenances.   Lot 106, Xu Yanzhou, Oil Painting; Estimate CAD $15,000- CAD $25,000 One of the highlights of the Stunning Arts Auction is lot 106, an oil painting of a young girl by Xu Yanzhou 徐彥洲 (1961-  ). Xu is one of the leading ‘realist’ modernist painters in China, and has extensively showcased his artworks in the international art scene. Implementing a Western-style of painting, he is best known for depicting Chinese rural subject matter including farmers, young children, livestock and villages. This painting was originally sold in 1993 at the Nancy Poole Gallery in Toronto and was later exhibited at Hong Kong’s Chinese University exhibition ‘Writing the Mind: Paintings by Xu Yanzhou’ in 2008. The current owner is Toronto’s prestigious Cowperthwaite Collection, and the painting has an auction estimate of CAD $15,000-$25,000. Lot 227, A Rare and Fine Huanghuali Box, 18/19th Century; Estimate CAD $15,000 - CAD $20,000 Lot 227, a Chinese huanghuali 黃花梨 box, is another choice work at the Stunning Arts Auction. This box would have been used by scholars to store their valuable documents and it comes from an extremely important Vancouver collector. It features the grace and simplicity that makes these types of scholar objects extremely desirable, and the entire surface maintains the immaculate graining associated with this rare species of hardwood. The top in particular is cut from a single piece of huanghuali and enhanced by natural ‘ghost face’ burls that are extremely sought after by collectors. This fine box carries an estimate of CAD $15,000-$20,000. The Stunning Arts sale also features a wide selection of jade carvings of which lot 229 is one of the more interesting examples. Despite its smaller size, this cat group is especially well-carved and has an endearing quality. Cats can symbolize longevity in Chinese culture, and in this case, the idea of long life is enhanced by the way both the adult cat and kitten are sharing a branch of sacred lingzi 靈芝fungus (the fungus of immortality).
