Beijing- In the history of Chinese painting, the city of Nanjing has played an important role as a place of growth for many prominent artists. Sotheby’s Beijing autumn sale of Modern and Contemporary Chinese Art features a dedicated selection of works by a group of artists that have been active in Nanjing and whose paintings convey a distinctively refined watery style that illustrates the lush scenery of the Jiangnan region.
