Details: 2Pcs Song Dynasty Type QINGBAI CELADON DECORATIVE BOWLS Antique Chinese Pottery Ceramic Glaze Blue Design Yingqing Porcelain Vessels

This lot consists of two antique Qingbai Celadon decorated bowls of Song Dynasty type. The bowls are adorned with decorative designs and glazed with a light blue coat.

These bowls measure 2.25" high and 5.5" at the largest diameter.

Qingbai ware is a type of Chinese porcelain produced under the Song Dynasty and Yuan dynasty, defined by the ceramic glaze used. Qingbai ware is white with a blue-greenish tint, and is also referred to as Yingqing ("shadow green", although this name appears only to date from the 18th century). It was made in Jiangxi province in south-eastern China, in several locations including Jingdezhen, and is arguably the first type of porcelain to be produced on a very large scale. However, it was not at the time a prestigious ware, and was mostly used for burial wares and exports, or a middle-rank Chinese market. The quality is very variable, reflecting these different markets; the best pieces can be very thin-walled. (Courtesy Wikipedia)
Condition / Notes: These bowls show well with only typical signs of age/wear. Some light soiling is present.

This figurative abstract expressionist oil painting on canvas is signed by its creator, noted New York School artist Salvatore Grippi, and dated 1958. The piece is one of Grippi's earlier works.

The painting measures approximately 61.25" x 61.25".

Worth Auctions is pleased to offer a number of rare works by Salvatore Grippi, an important New York School painter who worked and exhibited alongside the likes of de Kooning, Nevelson, and Kline during the heyday of the Abstract Expressionist movement in the 1950s. In 1968, Grippi established the art department at Ithaca College, where he taught until 1991. In 2011, he was honored with a solo retrospective at Cornell University's Johnson Museum of Art. This was the last time that Grippi's work was displayed in his hometown - until now. Worth Auctions is proud to offer Grippi’s works to the public. He was a significant figure in postwar abstraction and his work from this period has graced the walls of MoMA, the Whitney, and the Met but has seldom appeared at auction. It is fitting that these pieces are being shown and sold here in Ithaca, where Grippi taught and maintained a studio for most of his career, while they are also visible to collectors all over the world.

Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard (13 September 1803, Nancy, Meurthe-et-Moselle – 17 March 1847, Vanves), generally known by the pseudonym of Jean-Jacques or J. J. Grandville, was a French caricaturist.

He was born at Nancy, in northeastern France, to an artistic and theatrical family. The name "Grandville" was his grandparents' professional stage name. Grandville received his first instruction in drawing from his father, a painter of miniatures. At the age of twenty-one he moved to Paris, and soon afterwards published a collection of lithographs entitled Les Tribulations de la petite proprieté. He followed this with Les Plaisirs de tout âge and La Sibylle des salons (1827); but the work which first established his fame was Les Métamorphoses du jour (1828–29), a series of seventy scenes in which individuals with the bodies of men and faces of animals are made to play a human comedy. These drawings are remarkable for the extraordinary skill with which human characteristics are represented in animal facial features. (Courtesy Wikipedia)

Russell Chatham (born October 27, 1939) is a contemporary American landscape artist and author who spent most of his career living in Livingston, Montana.

His work has been exhibited in over 400 one man shows and in museums and galleries over the last five decades.

Chatham's work eschews the narrative tendency of much western art and presents landscapes that stand in intimate relationship towards the human figure even in the absence of it.
