Ms. Hu Yanyan, President of China Guardian (HK) Auctions Co., Ltd, says, “China Guardian Hong Kong Autumn Auctions this year will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) in October. Every autumn the spacious exhibition hall at the HKCEC offers us enormous freedom and possibilities in the display of the works. It also enables us to accommodate much more than in our Spring sales in terms of both quality and quantity. We are thrilled to announce a stellar line-up for the upcoming sales: White Cloud Studio, a six-metre scroll created by Zhang Daqian in 1947 and gifted to fellow painter Huang Junbi, Qing dynasty painter Jin Nong’s Album of Landscapes and Figures, a masterpiece of poetry, calligraphy as well as painting that was praised by Wu Hufan as ‘a godly creation’;
Yoshitomo Nara’s classic work Midnight Vampire, 24.01.73 painted by Zao Wou-ki at the turning point of his life, Li Chen’s 248-cm-tall sculpture Dragon-Riding Buddha appearing at auction for the first time; a rare white-glazed seated figure of a lion from the 7th century with illustrious provenance, a pair of doucai ‘Longevity’ dishes from the former collection of T. Y. Chao, an early Qing dynasty zitan waistless couch-bed of a simple style that transcends time, an important set of Ming dynasty scholar’s rocks spanning 14 metres that evokes distant mountains shrouded in mist, as well as a splendid suite of a jadeite and diamond necklace, earrings and a ring from an important Asian collection.
