Modern Asian Art

Sotheby’s Modern Asian Art Department presents carefully curated sales of oil paintings, sculptures, watercolours, drawings, prints and photographs, offering collectors the finest works of art by leading Modern Chinese artists. This genre encompasses the first and second generations of Chinese artists who explored modern Western art and were integral to the Modernist movement in Chinese art, such as Lin Fengmian, Wu Dayu, Sanyu, Wu Guanzhong, Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun, and Realist artists such as Xu Beihong, Chen Yifei, Wang Yidong and Ai Xuan. Sotheby’s set a world auction record for the artist when we sold Zao Wou-Ki’s Debut d'Octobre (Beginning of October) in Beijing in December 2013 for RMB89,680,000.

Since Sotheby’s launched a dedicated auction for Modern Asian Art in the autumn of 2008 in response to the remarkable expansion of the Asian art market sales in this category have grown exponentially.

Sotheby’s is the only international auction house with a specialist department dedicated to Modern Asian Art, and to offer sales that focus solely on this category.
