TRACES BY BAGRI FOUNDATION – GALLERY – MARCHANT

The specialties of the company are Imperial Chinese Ming and Qing porcelains, jades, cloisonné, pottery and works of art. Emphasis is placed on rarity, quality and provenance. Marchant pride themselves on fine pieces that have passed through their hands, many now in major museums and collections worldwide. Services that can be undertaken are the buying and selling of pieces and collections, commission bidding in auctions around the world and specialist advice.

“We were approached by the Bagri Foundation and were happy to participate, as we are always interested in attracting new audiences to Chinese art, and to have a contemporary artist produce a piece inspired by our exhibition seemed like a novel way to engage and interpret both 17th century art and 21st century art.”
