  • The Korean lots at Christie's also bombed. It must be that Korean art is weak at the moment since Chinese collectors have very little interest in it.

  • Such joy watching your videos! 😁 it would be so cool to see a bronse video, how to recognise good and bad bronse statues! 😊 fakes and real, greetings from Sweden

  • Thanks Peter! You said "Growing out of the bowl" when you talked about that beautiful bowl with it's lovely patina, would have they used something to stop this? Could this not be detrimental to the bowl in another few hundred years if left untreated? Just curious. ?

  • The matter of museum deaccessioning is questionable and often unethical. The fundamental reason why donors sacrificed their ownership is because they wanted to let the general public have an opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of the arts. After a museum sells its collections, the arts become private properties again, which is against the will of the original donors, and at the same time, the original donors also lose their credit of making contributions to the society. The collections, altogether with the tags that recognized the donors’ contributions, now completely vanish from the eyes of the general public forever. It’s a pure loss for the public as well as the donors, while the museum and the auction house get the money and the buyers get the arts with great provenance. I don’t think that the items for sale are “duplicates”, and I am not sure how the curators justified the deaccessioning. Nevertheless, thank you, museums and auction houses, for teaching us a good lesson.

    • @Ernie the NYC Tabby That’s a good point. Thank you!

    • @Thomas Hellberg Exactly. Although they claimed that they would use the fund to acquire new materials, I don’t believe that.

    • if you think donors all donate to "display their item in the public eye", I suggest you watch some videos on how tax deduction works in the art world.
