Lot 127, Chinese Amber Brush Washer, 18th Century

Amber - called 'hu po', or spirit of the tiger - was once believed to have been created from the last dying breath of the tiger. As a result, this substance had special properties, such as increasing circulation and acting as a natural perfume.

From ancient China through to the Qing dynasty, Chinese artisans crafted everything from jewelry to pillows out of amber. This brush washer, carved in the form of a peach surrounded by leafy flowers, flaunts the skill of early Qing dynasty artisans.

The brush washer is featured in our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction, today and tomorrow, September 19-20, beginning at 10 am.

Lot 479, Chinese Painting of Peking Opera by Guan Liang

Leaping high into the air with his staff overhead, the eponymous protagonist of the Peking Opera "The Monkey King." The play derives from the classical 16th century Chinese epic "Journey to the West," attributed to Wu Cheng'en.

Peking Opera is known for its elaborate costuming and makeup, as this painting demonstrates. The art form was developed during the Qing dynasty, drawing on older precedents, and remains popular today.

The painting, by the 20th century artist Guan Liang (1900-1986), is part of our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction on September 19-20, 2020.

Lot 450, Chinese Painting of a Parade attributed to Jiao Bingzhen

Hunting was a favorite pastime of the Qing Imperial Court, becoming an annual ritual under the Kangxi emperor in the late 17th century. The imperial hunt served numerous purposes, from developing martial skills of the soldiers accompanying the hunt to offering a time and place for courtiers to pay tribute to the imperial family.

Above all, the hunt was a way for the Qing dynasty to demonstrate its nomadic Manchu roots, displaying skills of archery and horsemanship. Paintings like this one, attributed to Jiao Bingzhen, show off the the grandeur of the hunt, depicting in detail the Imperial camp as well as the herding maneuvers used to direct the hunt.

The mural-size painting will be brought to auction in our Fall Fine Art & Antiques sale on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, visit www.oakridgeauctiongallery/upcoming.

Lot 502, Chinese Painting of Scholar by Zhang Daqian

Scholar's paintings - both of scholars and by scholars - are a long-standing staple of Chinese artistic tradition. Natural themes predominate as a way for scholar-artists to express their state of mind, political views, and progress toward self-cultivation.

Over centuries of dynastic changes, withdrawal into the natural world enabled the scholar to find elements both of stability and spontaneity which were unavailable in the highly-ordered or disintegrating court culture. This 20th century example by the renowned artist Zhang Daqian follows in the wenrenhua or literati painting tradition while also reflecting the artist's characteristic brushwork and technique.

The painting is estimated at $35,000 - 45,000.

Lot 332, Chinese Bronze Beast Censer, Ming

This beast-form censer strongly resembles the Chinese guardian lion, which often sits in front of entrances to buildings, usually as part of a pair. In this case, the lion stands alone, with his right paw raised in the iconography of a male guardian lion.

The lion functions as a censer or incense burner, with a hollow torso that allows for incense to be inserted and the fragrance to disperse. Incense was used prominently as early as the Shang and Zhou dynasties, with censer forms becoming ever more elaborate over the course of the centuries.

The censer, estimated at $1,000 - 1,500, will be part of our Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction on September 19-20. For more information, visit https://oakridgeauctiongallery.com/auction/39.

Lot 233, Imperial Chinese Porcelain Jardiniere, Kangxi

A veritable garden of flowers, trees, leaves, and vines adorns the exterior of this Kangxi period (1661-1722) jardiniere. Among the flora featured are pine tree, symbolic of longevity, and bamboo shoots, for traditional values as well as harmony between man and nature.

The planter's original owner, Zou Dianbang, helped found the Beiyuan restaurant in the 1920's, which serves up traditional Cantonese cuisine to this day. The planter will be featured in our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, visit https://oakridgeauctiongallery.com/auction/39.

Lot 467, Chinese Painting of Buffalo by Luo Qing

Curled up and fast asleep, the buffalo depicted by Luo Qing in this ink painting dreams of plum blossoms - a sign of good things to come in Chinese culture.

Taken together with the buffalo's significance as a hardworking, dedicated animal, the painting could be read to mean that hard work is eventually rewarded. The buffalo certainly appears to be content in the arms of Morpheus.

Unusually, the painting seems subdivided by two different substrate papers - one lighter, depicting the butterfly and a flowering branch, and a slightly darker paper with flowering branches framing the corners.

This auspicious image will be up for auction in our September Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction next weekend. For more information, visit https://oakridgeauctiongallery.com/auction/39.

Lot 299, Chinese Snow Scene Vase by He Xuren, Republic Period

He Xuren (1882-1940) was part of a group of prominent 20th century artists known collectively as the Zhu Shan Ba You, along with Liu Yucen, Wang Yiting, and Bi Botao. His porcelain snow scenes are distinctive for their reputed ability to convey a true sense of cold to the beholder.

This snow scene vase depicts a lone fisherman on a wintry river, his boat dwarfed by the frost-clad vegetation just in front of him. His boat and the plants just beside him stand out crisply against the otherwise soft texture of the painted waterscape.

The vase comes to Oakridge from a Philadelphia collection, brought to the United States from Hong Kong in the 1960s and 70s, and is estimated at $30,000 – 50,000.

Lot 125, Chinese Jadeite Carving of Bull, 19th Century

For a creature symbolic of hard work, dedication, and perseverance, this little jadeite carving of a bull or ox is remarkably playful. The bull's head is turned to look back and slightly upward over its right flank, making it seem even more diminutive.

Estimated at $600 - 1,000, the bull will be brought to auction in our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques sale on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, visit https://oakridgeauctiongallery.com/auction/39.

Lot 232, Imperial Chinese Dark Ground Lobed Vase, 19th Century

On the underside of this tall, deep blue vase is a 4-character mark that reads Qinghua Zhenpin - "Precious Object of Pure Splendor."

Little more need be said; the lobed vase proclaims its precious nature with the quality of its craftsmanship, particularly the front and back mandorlas depicting dragons chasing a pearl.

The vase will be brought to auction in our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques sale on September 19-20, 2020.

Lot 345, Chinese Formal Silk Dragon Robe, 19th Century

This lavishly embroidered dark-ground silk robe exemplifies the formal wear, or 'chaofu', of the Qing Imperial court. Side-fastenings, an apron skirt, and the distinctive horse-hoof cuffs reference the early nomadic roots of the Manchu clan which founded the Qing dynasty. The central motif of a dragon and a pearl, meanwhile, suggest the original wearer's elevated status, as the wearing of the dragon motif required the permission of the emperor himself.

Chaofu was reserved for occasions such as solstices, imperial weddings, and important celebrations and ceremonies. Officials would have supplemented robes like this one with a heavily embroidered collar, as well as a hat, that further denoted their particular rank in the imperial hierarchy.

The robe, estimated at $3,000 - 4,000, will be brought to auction in our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques sale on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, visit https://oakridgeauctiongallery.com/auction/39.

Lot 155, Chinese Bronze Bell, Eastern Zhou–Spring and Autumn

The Zhou dynasty ruled from 1046-256 BC, contributing to Chinese culture the philosophies of Confucianism, Taoism, and many other philosophical, musical, and literary advancements. This bell hails from the second portion of the Zhou dynasties long reign, when the capital was moved eastward to Luoyang.

For a two-thousand year old object, the bell is in remarkable condition, with some loose elements in the wooden frame and a thick green patina over the bronze. The bell comes to Oakridge from the collection of the descendants of Maurice Etangs, a former chief of police in Tianjin, China from 1935 to 1945.

Lot 311, Chinese Gilt Lacquer Figure of Weituo, Ming

Proud and imperious, Weituo stands ready to lead the heavenly generals in defense of the Buddhist faith. This Ming Dynasty statue depicts the Boddhisattva ready for action, with one foot thrust forward and hand resting outward on a now-missing weapon.

At 36 inches tall, the statue is comparable in size to a small child, which heightens the animation and dynamism of its carved expression.

The statue will be part of our upcoming Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, visit www.oakridgeauctiongallery.com.

Lot 473, Chinese Painting of Tigers by Zhang Sh*tong

"Tiger, tiger, burning bright... What immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?" asks William Blake.

William Blake might not be contextually appropriate for a Chinese guohua painting, but his poem encapsulates the eye-catching brightness and feral attraction of the tiger.

The artist, Zhang Sh*tong, conveys in watercolor what Blake verbalizes, depicting the tigers creeping through the grass with arched backs and curled lips, their fiery pelt sharply contrasting the subdued blue-grey landscape.

What better way to capture the brightly burning, fearful symmetry of Blake's own tiger?

Lot 320, Chinese Gilt Table Stand of 18 Luohan, Qianlong

Mythical beast and foamy waves set off this two-sided Chinese Gilt Table Stand of 18 Luohan from the Qianlong Period, made of two gilded, cast bronze panels set in zitan wood. This Qing dynasty piece is part of the collection of General Xiang Hanping, known as the “Confucian General” for his dedication not only to military but also literary exploits.

One side of the table stand shows the Luohan, or Arhats, protectors of the Buddhist faith, with mythical creatures, while on the other two sailboats cross a vast sea that stretches past the boundaries of the bronze plaque.

Estimated at $20,000 - 30,000, the table stand will be up for auction in our Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, please visit www.oakridgeauctiongallery.com/upcoming.

Lot 281, Thomas McKnight Serigraph 'Bay of Naples' 125/175

Thomas McKnight has worked as both a painter and a print-maker, with his work entering the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the White House.

Prints featuring interiors and landscapes of the Mediterranean region are a large part of his oeuvre; most remarkable, however, are his figurative paintings, which are reminiscent of late medieval or early Renaissance artists like Sandro Botticelli in their subject matter and stylized naturalism.

This particular serigraph was part of our August Art, Antiques & Collectibles auction on August 8, 2020.

Lot 457, Chinese Painting of Country Store by Liu Yunsheng

Liu Yunsheng (born 1950s) is known for his watercolor paintings of Tibet, such as this meeting of two horsemen outside of a country store.

The artist's skill with his medium is evident in the harsh chiaroscoru he creates using watercolor pigments - the scene is lit by a haunting, harsh light reminiscent of winter mornings, casting deep shadows over the pale ground.

Evocative and faintly nostalgic, this painting will be featured in our upcoming Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, please visit www.oakridgeauctiongallery.com/upcoming.

Lot 67, Chinese Jade Axe, Shang

For all the beauty and majesty of Imperial Porcelains or 20th century guohua masters, there is something simply fascinating about this almost crude, and extremely old jade axe blade.

The Shang Dynasty, to which this item dates, ruled from 1600 to 1046 B.C. - the Bronze Age. Their culture developed a 365-day solar calendar as well as sophisticated artworks in jade, bronze, and ceramics.

The axe will be part of our Fine Asian Art & Antiques auction on September 19-20, 2020. For more information, visit www.oakridgeauctiongallery.com.

Oakridge Auction Gallery is different from the majority of art galleries that I have visited. First, it has the inside design of a home in the valley, classic design without bragging about it. They have an excellent staff, who have the ability to give a potential participant in the auction a reason to buy. In other words, they know what they are talking about and most important they can tell the original from the copy. Soft spoken and always willing to please. Give them five stars and get your check book and credit cards. Also, suggest taking a look at some of the stuff that comes up in November.
