Christie’s Hong Kong will present its “Fine Chinese Modern and Contemporary Ink Paintings” auctions on 1 December and “Fine Chinese Classical Paintings and Calligraphy” on 2 December, 2020. Meticulously put together for art collectors and enthusiasts, the auctions will feature global collections and timeless masterpieces.
In The “Fine Chinese Classical Paintings and Calligraphy” auction, we are excited to present Shen Zhou and Wen Zhengming’s Landscape and Calligraphy, a Ming dynasty masterpiece previously from the Japanese collection of the Iida (Takashimaya) family. This season we are very pleased to present a selection of extraordinary calligraphy by the Ming and Qing masters Zhu Yunming, Xu Wei, Huang Daozhou, Wang Duo and Fu Shan, amongst others.
In “Fine Chinese Modern and Contemporary Ink Paintings”, we are honoured to present a collection from the family of Chen Lifu, many of which have accompanied Chen across continents and bore witness to his legendary life.
