Chinese Paintings – Classical

Sotheby's Classical Chinese Paintings Department offers high quality works of Chinese painting and calligraphy, encompassing a variety of styles from the 12th through 19th centuries. These fine works emphasise the importance of traditional and modern artistic styles, underlining the connection between poetry, calligraphy, painting and the artist’s seal.

The expertise of our specialists is widely recognised throughout the globe, and therefore our team has been entrusted with the sale of many rare and important works.

Classical Chinese Paintings auctions have been held every year in New York during March and September. Our March 2015 Fine Classical Chinese Paintings & Calligraphy auction in New York brought over $41 million, close to four times of the high estimate.

Sotheby’s is delighted to announce the launch of Classical Chinese Paintings sales in Hong Kong, adding to its existing saleroom for the category in New York. For more information, please click here.
