Song: Chinese Ceramics, 10th to 13th Century (part 5)

Song: Chinese Ceramics, 10th to 13th Century (part 5)

10 May - 1 June 2018

This exhibition features twenty classic ceramic wares from a range of important kilns active during the Song period (960 - 1279). This was an especially innovative and rich period for ceramic production and is often regarded as the ‘golden age’ of stoneware in China. Examples from both northern and southern kilns are included. Yaozhou celadons and fine porcellaneous Ding pieces are amongst the representatives of northern wares while examples from the south include the celebrated tea-bowls produced by the Jizhou kilns. The extraordinary diversity of shapes, glazes and innovative techniques seen in this exhibition reflects the richness of the Song ceramic tradition.

Six Dynasties art from the Norman A. Kurland collection part one

2 November - 25 November 2017

This exhibition features a superb selection of Six Dynasties art (220 to 581 AD) assembled over four decades by Norman A. Kurland, a renowned film and television agent. His focused and scholarly eye has led him to form perhaps the best collection of Six Dynasties art in private hands. The thirty-eight pieces in the current exhibition, though limited primarily to the fifth and sixth centuries, range widely in material – stone sculptures, earthenware figures, gilt-bronze metalwork and glazed ceramics. Highlights include rare examples of Buddhist sculptures, both freestanding and those from imperially sponsored Buddhist cave temples such as Yungang and Gongxian and finely modelled earthenware tomb figures.

Transfigured Echoes: Recent Paintings by Liu Dan

14 October - 15 November 2015

The celebrated contemporary ink master, Liu Dan, has created ten new paintings to be exhibited at Eskenazi Limited to coincide with the opening of Frieze London and Asian Art in London. Four of the paintings are ambitious, large abstract landscapes, panoramic in scale, marked by energetic and textural brushwork. One in particular, Redefining Pleats of Matter, reflects Liu Dan’s life-long interest in Renaissance art and has been created in response to a Raphael drawing of Saint Benedict Receiving Maurus and Placidus. The subject of the six remaining paintings is scholars’ rocks, a traditional literati theme, which has been given a contemporary slant through Liu Dan’s exacting eye and meticulous brushwork.

This exhibition highlights a group of thirty important Song ceramics from a distinguished private collection. The Song period (960 - 1279) was an especially innovative and rich time for ceramic production and is often regarded as the ‘golden age’ of stoneware in China. This collection features outstanding examples from nearly all the main kilns from both north and south, including Guan, Ding, Jun, Yaozhou, Cizhou and Jizhou. Notable are the range of techniques used, the variety of shapes and indeed the extraordinary quality of the pieces, many previously owned by well-known collectors of the twentieth century, such as Lord Cunliffe, Mr and Mrs Alfred Clark and Alfred Schoenlicht.
