The upcoming auction, presented by Bonhams, will feature Japanese and Korean art, including property from the collection of Drs. Edmund and Julie Lewis. The event offers works from across different art periods, with some dating back to 1615. One highlighted lot is a collection of vintage Japanese matchbox labels. There are a total of 297 woodblock-printed labels assembled in the available notebook with six to nine labels mounted on each page.
Several notable Korean lots are offered as well. Chaekgeori was an art form that influenced centuries of design in Korea. This style of still-life painting first emerged in the late 18th century. It reflected the country’s love for books and learning. Offered in this sale in a 19th-century chaekgeori screen belonging to the Joseon dynasty. The historical eight-panel screen depicts an array of books, scrolls, and tools associated with a scholar’s studio. Vintage swords, ceramics, and paintings by noted artists are also presented. Interested collectors can visit Bonhams to view the entire catalog and to register to bid.
