Carlton Rochell Asian Art

Printemps Asiatique

June 6 – 13, 2024
The Pagoda
48 Rue de Courcelles 75008 Paris

Since 2018, galleries specializing in Asian art, major auction houses, and cultural institutions have joined forces for Printemps Asiatique Paris. Designed on the model of Asia Week New York and Asian Art in London, this event is organized around a common calendar of exhibitions, auctions, tours, and conferences. It allows art lovers and collectors to discover some of the major works available in galleries, auction rooms, and museums. Its ambition is to affirm the importance of Asian art in France, particularly in its capital.

For the third consecutive year, the Parisian rendez-vous dedicated to Asian art will expand beyond the borders of France. Specialised French gallerists and antiques dealers will welcome their international counterparts for a collective exhibition at the Pagoda, former home of the notorious Chinese dealer and collector Ching Tsai Loo (1880-1957), better known as C. T. Loo. The emblematic building, with its red-ochre façade and Chinese-inspired architectural elements, nestled in the heart of the Haussmannian district of the Plaine Monceau, resonates to Asian art lovers throughout the world.

We look forward to seeing you in Paris!

Carlton Rochell established his gallery in New York in 2002 after a distinguished career at Sotheby’s. He has remained focused on the art of India, the Himalayas, and Southeast Asia and has staged many important exhibitions since opening his gallery. Holland Cotter of the New York Times in his review of the inaugural exhibition in 2002 wrote: “The arrival of a new, open-to-the public gallery devoted to Indian and Southeast Asian art is an event for the city; such showcases are few and far between…although Himalayan and Cambodian bronzes are among the most exquisite items, the gallery is dominated by several large-scale sculptures of a kind we rarely see outside museums.”

Carlton Rochell established the first full-time auctions in North America devoted to Indian and Southeast Asian in 1985, and he has handled many important objects from distinguished collections including: the Pan-Asian Collection, the Heeramaneck Collection, Carter Burden, Laurance Rockefeller, William S. Paley, the Ehrenfeld Collection, the Estate of William H. Wolff, the Estate of Richard B. Gump, and many others.

Since the establishment of Carlton Rochell Asian Art, the gallery has placed works of art privately with many important private collectors in the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, as well as to institutions such as: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Dallas Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Rubin Museum of Art, Ackland Art Museum, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, Museum Rietberg, Zurich, The David Collection, Copenhagen, and the Zhiguan Museum of Fine Art, Beijing.

Carlton Rochell has also exhibited in international art fairs such as Frieze Masters in London, Fine Art Asia in Hong Kong, The Winter Show in New York, and Maastricht (beginning in 2024).

The gallery purchases art as well as accepting works on consignment and is pleased to offer advisory services to collectors. We also provide appraisal services for Fair Market, Insurance, and Charitable Gift purposes.
