The breadth of Asian history is so vast and so varied that the term “Asian Arts” barely breaks the surface of the rich artistic heritage of the Asiatic continent. The Leland Little Asian Arts Department has sold pieces from a monumental Vietnamese lacquer painting to fine Chinese Imperial throne covers, Tibetan thangkas to original woodblock prints by the Japanese masters like Yoshida Hiroshi. Each represents the very best of its country’s artistic traditions and the global nature of the contemporary art market.
