The 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale features a selection of exceptional global art spanning a wide range of categories, such as Asian 20th century and Contemporary, Chinese Contemporary Ink, Impressionist and Modern, and Post-War and Contemporary Art. 34 works from acclaimed artists were carefully selected, including works by Zao Wou-Ki, Chu Teh-Chun, Zeng Fanzhi, Yoshitomo Nara, Yayoi Kusama, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, and Andy Warhol.
The leading highlight of the sale is a large-scale painting by Zao Wou-Ki entitled 13.02.92. This mature piece by the artist was painted in 1992 and perfectly showcases the complex hues and translucent layers that characterize Zao’s best work from the period. Instead of filling the canvas, Zao skillfully applied washes of pigment that settle softly around a central space, framing the composition in a way that showcases the radiance of the work’s natural energy. 13.02.92 showcases the results of Zao’s lifetime of dedication to the pursuit of artistic transcendence, and his deep understanding of both his native and adopted artistic traditions.
