    LOTS 1296 1297
    PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE JAPANESE COLLECTION
    In 1992, members of the China and Japan Cultural Exchange group visited China, including artists He Haixua, Bai Xueshi, Dong Shouping, Tian Shiguang, and Huang Zhou. The artists conducted an exhibition at the Beijing Hotel, where they also had dinner together. These present lots were purchased during the exhibition by the current owner’s family.
