In recent years, Asia has become a leading center of the international art market, with many newsworthy auctions of historic treasures and contemporary finds, such as the sales of the Meiyintang collection of Chinese ceramics and the Ullens collection of Chinese contemporary art. Howard-Sneyd, who has been the Sotheby’s auctioneer for many record prices in Asian art, will compare and contrast Chinese and Indian collecting and collectors. He also will analyze the boom and opportunities in the contemporary Asian paintings market.
