Post lot text
The following two Zhang Daqian paintings are previously from the Dongxi Studio collection in Belgium. The owners first visited Hong Kong more than three decades ago and fell in love with Chinese art, thus began a journey of collecting from ancient pottery and jade carvings to modern and contemporary ink paintings. Their collection, which encompassed paintings by modern masters such as Zhang Daqian, Wu Guanzhong, Li Keran and Huang Yongyu, offered a testament to their exquisite taste and connoisseurship. Part of the collection, including the current lots, was sold in Christie’s Hong Kong in 2015.
