Zetterquist Galleries
Asia Week New York March 2023

Eric Zetterquist announced that during Asia Week New York this March 2023, his gallery will exhibit and sell the exceptional collection The Mary and Cheney Cowles Collection of Chinese Ceramics.

This collection has been quietly and judiciously assembled over the last fifty years, purchased from many of the world’s finest dealers and auctions, with an eye for artistic beauty and excellent quality. The fifty-six pieces offered span one thousand years from the 4th through 14th centuries and include concentrations in white and sancai Tang Dynasty earthen wares, as well as Yue, Yaozhou, Ding, Qingbai, Jun, and Cizhou type wares, with black and brown kilns from Northern and Southern China represented.

This gathering of ceramics has been known to only to a handful of visiting scholars over the years and has rarely been seen in its entirety. This March will offer a rare moment to see this extraordinary collection before it disperses.
