Priestley & Ferraro and Bonhams are the winners of this year’s Asian Art in London Art Awards, sponsored by Apollo and the Antiques Trade Gazette. The awards were presented at Asian Art in London’s 20th Anniversary Champagne Reception, held in the new Joseph E. Hotung Gallery at the British Museum.

The prizes were judged by a committee including curators from the Ashmolean and the Fitzwilliam Museum, and arts journalists from Apollo and the ATG.
