In this exclusive interview over lunch at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, one of the world’s leading Chinese art dealers and gallery owners in Paris, Christian Deydier, talks openly about the industry, its limitations and the sometime debacle of the auction business. He also shares his vast knowledge of ancient Chinese art and his tips on buying. Spirited, direct, audacious and compelling, this exceptional exchange celebrates a grand Chinese art dealer. Deydier is a cultural phenomenon and an art world rarity – but unlike the treasures in his gallery, Monsieur Deydier is not for sale.
