Woodblock Prints and Hindu Gods at Asia Week New York

The New York Times

For more than a decade, before the pandemic, collectors and private dealers of Asian antiquities would converge in New York every spring for annual auctions at half a dozen houses including Bonham’s, Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Many out-of-town dealers would set up shows of their own in hotels or partner galleries, while hometown galleries and museums mounted special exhibitions for the occasion.

In 2020, this festival, known as Asia Week, was among the first art events disrupted by Covid-19, and it has since turned into a year-round trade group promoting lectures, events and exhibitions of art from India, China, Korea, Japan and Tibet.
