NEW YORK, NY.- Brendan Lynch has been named the new Chairman of Asia Week New York, the collaboration of prominent international Asian art galleries, six major auction houses, and numerous museums and Asian cultural institutions.

“I am honored to be the new chairman of this illustrious association of galleries and auction houses devoted to the promotion of Asian art,” says Lynch, whose London-based gallery, Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch, Ltd., specializes in Indian, Islamic and Himalayan art, as well as Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquities. “As we head into our milestone 15th year, I look forward to maintaining the high standards of excellence promoted by our members. Much has been achieved in the sale and promotion of works of art and paintings from China, Japan, India, and the Himalayas, with the resulting acquisition of diverse works and masterpieces by some of the world’s great institutions. It is my intent to expand the scope of our association by building upon these strengths and encouraging new interest in Asian art.”

Brendan Lynch

Brendan Lynch was born and raised in Waterford, Ireland. In 1977, at the age of 19, he was offered a summer job at Sotheby’s in London and was subsequently retained as a specialist to run sales in Indian, Himalayan, Southeast Asian and Islamic art, becoming Director of that department in 1990. While continuing to run the London sales, Lynch established the first regular Indian art sales in New York in 1985, and in the 1990s spearheaded new markets with annual exhibitions in Istanbul, followed by Sotheby’s’ first auction in India.

In 1997, after twenty years at the auction house, he with Oliver Forge, the director of the Antiquities Department at Sotheby’s, left the company to establish Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch Ltd., independent consultants, and dealers.
