A Tribute to My Godfather Robert Hatfield Ellsworth

A Tribute to My Godfather Robert Hatfield Ellsworth (1929-2014)
“I deal only to collect.”
By Wang Shaofang, August 10, 2014

Robert Hatfield Ellsworth will be broadly remembered as the single most prominent dealer of Asian antiquities in the 20th century. His range of expertise, foresight, and business acumen were exceeded only by his eye for beauty and the generosity of his soul. He influenced every major collection of Asian Art in the United States (both museums and private collections). He instigated the return of artifacts back to China and his primary charitable cause (which he helped establish) was the Chinese Heritage Art Foundation, based in Hong Kong and dedicated to restoring Ming and Qing dynasty structures in Huangshan, a city in central China with a trove of neglected architectural masterworks.

Guggenheim Museum and the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation to Present Wang Jianwei: Time Temple

New York City, August 12, 2014, — From October 31, 2014 through February 16, 2015, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents Wang Jianwei: Time Temple, an immersive exhibition of new work by the Beijing-based artist and his first solo museum exhibition in North America. Wang is recognized within China for his bold conceptual practice and vital contributions to the avant-garde and experimental art movements of the reform era that spans the early 1980s to the present day. Informed by critical theory and philosophy, his work links formal concerns about art making and process with inquiries into contemporary society and the experience of time. Time Temple is the first in a series of three commission-based exhibitions through The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative at the Guggenheim Museum, which explores key ideas and core artists shaping contemporary art and discourse from China, within a global context. As a part of the initiative, the commissioned works will enter the Guggenheim’s permanent collection as The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Collection.
