Lot Essay

The collection formerly belonged to a European collector who enjoyed Chinese art. During the 1980s and the 1990s, the collector was in Hong Kong and frequented galleries and auctions searching for modern Chinese paintings, with a particular interest in Wu Guanzhong and Huang Yongyu. These paintings are in the market for the very first time, having been in the same collection for more than three decades.
