A PAINTED WOOD LUOHAN, MING DYNASTY
Item Details
Description
A PAINTED WOOD AND GESSO FIGURE OF A LUOHAN, MING DYNASTY
China, 1368-1644. Powerfully carved, seated in a calm posture atop a rockwork base, his right hand clenched into a fist at the chest and the left resting on his knee, wearing loose-fitting robes draped over his left shoulder, revealing his emaciated ribcage, and decorated with raised floral designs in gesso. The serene face with heavy-lidded eyes, deep wrinkles, the mouth slightly open.

Provenance: Theodor Bohlken, Berlin, 1931. Georg L. Hartl, Bernried. A private collection in Salzburg, acquired from the above. Theodor Bohlken (1851-1954) was a noted dealer of Chinese works of art during the first half of the 20th century. While he sold tea on the ground level of his large store, the three floors above displayed Buddhist sculpture ranging from the Wei to the Ming dynasty, Chinese ceramics from the Han to the late Qing period, and Japanese works of art. The clientele consisted of mostly private collectors who visited Berlin on business. Objects with a Bohlken provenance are found in the Museum of East Asian Art in Cologne and in the Museum of Asian Art in Berlin.
Published: Weltkunst, 15 February 1931, volume 5, no. 7, page 8 (together with two other luohans from a group of eight, all dated to the Song dynasty).
Condition: Overall good condition, commensurate with age, displaying remarkably well. Extensive wear, weathering, erosion, age cracks, losses, minor chips and old repairs. Various layers of lacquer from different periods, mostly flaked and worn off. With a fine, naturally grown patina and a good, unctuous feel overall, testimony of extensive handling over the centuries.

Weight: 6.1 kg
Dimensions: Height 57.7 cm

Auction result comparison: Compare a closely related polychrome wood figure of a seated luohan, 54 cm high, also dated to the Ming dynasty, at Sotheby's New York in Informing The Eye Of The Collector: Chinese Ceramics And Works Of Art From J.T. Tai & Co. on 22 March 2011, lot 268, sold for USD 47,500.
