If you Like to know more about Carlton Rochell Asian Art
Carlton Rochell Asian Art opened in October 2002 in the Fuller Building, a New York City landmark home to many prominent art dealers.

The gallery specializes in sculpture, paintings and decorative arts from Tibet, Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, India and Indonesia prior to 1850. Holland Cotter of the New York Times in his review of the inaugural exhibition wrote “The arrival of a new, open-to-the public gallery devoted to Indian and Southeast Asian art is an event for the city; such showcases are few and far between…although Himalayan and Cambodian bronzes are among the most exquisite items, the gallery is dominated by several large-scale sculptures of a kind we rarely see outside museums.”

Carlton Rochell spent the first eighteen years of his career at Sotheby's, where he founded the Indian and Southeast Asian Art Department in 1988. He handled important works of art from such well-known collections as Mrs. Nelson Rockefeller, Carter Burden, Alice Heerameck, William S. Paley, Mrs. James Alsdorf, Mr. and Mrs. Klaus Perls, and Earl Morse. Later, he became the Managing Director of China and Southeast Asia and Head of the Asian Departments worldwide, as well as a highly regarded auctioneer. Online Catalogue contents Page 1.

Both the highest-grossing auction of Indian and Southeast Asian art ever held and the highest price ever achieved at auction for an individual work were supervised by Mr. Rochell. Souren Melekian wrote “At Sotheby’s, Carlton Rochell in New York raised his auctions of Indian art, now held during Asia week, to world eminence in the last two or three years.”(International Herald Tribune, July 26, 1997)
Finally, the first-ever auction of Contemporary Indian Paintings worldwide was overseen by Mr. Rochell in 1995, the celebrated sale of paintings from the collection of Chester and Davida Herwitz.
