Titel: A Dealer's Hand: The Chinese Art World ...
Verlag: Scala Arts Publishers Inc.
Buchbeschreibung Scala, London, 2012. First edition. Quarto. Hardcover. New. 352 Pages, 600 illustrations in colour and black and white. As the West awakes, with some apprehension, to the economic power of that once-supine dragon, China, this book is a timely reminder that its material culture has never failed to entrance and amaze those looking in from the outside, no less over the 50 years covered here than in the more distant past. Giuseppe Eskenazi is the pre-eminent expert and dealer in Chinese art and therefore well-placed to cast light on one aspect of this cultural relationship. Hajni Elias is a highly experienced researcher in the field. Together they have woven a narrative with several strands: Giuseppe's progression from young boy in Constantinople to doyen of Chinese art dealers, enlivened by reminiscence and anecdote; an overview of the market for Chinese art in the West and the part played in it by scholars, dealers, auction houses, museums and collectors; and a fabulous pictorial record of hundreds of the marvellous works of art that have passed through the Eskenazi Gallery's doors.
