The first day will cover Chinese and Himalayan works, the second art from Vietnam and Indochina and Japanese works.

One of the highlights will be this six-fold lacquer screen by Lê Quốc Lộc (1918-87), a highly regarded lacquer artist who trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de l’indochine. The screen was created in 1943, the year after the artist graduated from the school when he established his own lacquer workshop in Hanoi.

It has a provenance to a French Riviera collection and is estimated at €200,000-400,000.
