LOTS 1212 — 1217PROPERTY FROM THE HUAI QIN GE COLLECTIONThis collection of paintings comes from Mr. Lui Shu Ying (1919-2000). Lui started a finance company in Hong Kong at the young age of 16 and moved to Shanghai in the early 1940s to expand his business, returning to Hong Kong in 1949 when Shanghai was liberated. While he remained active in investment activities, his daily life was completely immersed in the gardening of penjing (potted plants of the Lingnan school), in the study, appreciation and collections of Chinese paintings, jade and antiques. As a seasoned collector, Lui was very particular when sourcing for good pieces of art. A good number of his pieces were bought from Christie’s Hong Kong when its office opened in 1986, while some were bought directly from artists such as Zhao Shao’ang, Huang Junbi, Yu Youren, Li Yanshan, and Xie Zhiliu.
