The Collection of David and Nayda Utterberg, Christie's
March 22, 10am

David and Nayda Utterberg were attracted to Asian art from the start. They formed a substantial collection of Buddhist painting and sculpture, as well as ink painting, woodblock-printed Buddhist material, medieval Japanese ceramics, some lacquer, Korean celadons, and both Japanese and Korean folding screens, among other genres.
