Grace Wu Bruce

The Grace Wu Bruce gallery specializes in the finest examples of Chinese furniture of the 16th and 17th centuries and was established in Hong Kong in 1987.  The gallery has participated in prestigious fairs such The European Fine Art Fair, Maastricht and The International Asian Art Fair, New York as well as mounting exhibitions in house. In addition, many of the most distinguished Chinese furniture collections have been formed with her advice and assistance, including the Lu Ming Shi Collection assembled by Belgian collector Mr. Philippe De Backer, as well as The Dr. S Y Yip Collection from Hong Kong, both achieving remarkable results at auction. Known affectionately as the ‘Queen of Huanghuali’, Grace herself is a global authority on Chinese furniture and has published numerous articles over the past 20 years in publications such as Orientations and Arts of Asia. She has also curated shows at the Palace Museum, Beijing, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and the Guimet Museum, Paris.  Grace has published four books on the subject, not including this latest publication.
