The Rev. John L. Walch, priest and artist of Oklahoma City, OK had a life long love affair with Asian art and artifacts. He began his collecting in the early 1940's as a student at the Art Institute in Chicago. His sources were major auction houses in the U.S., antique and Asian dealers in San Francisco, Boston, Baltimore, Chicago and New York. A world traveler, he also added to his collection buying in Rome, London, Japan, Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. Fr. Walch was a charter member of the Cloisonne Society.
This is the first in a series of sales including property from his estate. The sale also includes a selection of netsuke and other works of art formerly in the collection of Joseph Seo of New York City, as well as property from several institutions and other private collectors.
