Sotheby’s Fine Classical Chinese Paintings 2020 Autumn Auction will be led by two masterpieces formerly in the Qing Imperial Collection, namely Ren Renfa’s Five Drunken Princes Returning on Horseback and Huang Yue; Zhao Bingchong’s Landscapes after Si Kongtu. The exquisite handscroll painting Five Drunken Princes Returning on Horseback demonstrates Ren’s delightful use of colour and lively yet concise brushstrokes. Of impeccable provenance, the treasured work has been in the hands of great connoisseurs throughout the centuries, including the Qianlong Emperor. Another highlight Landscapes after Si Kongtu is a compilation of distinguished calligraphy works and paintings by Qing masters Huang Yue and Zhao Bingchong.

The sale also boasts some of the finest and rarest works from various important private collections, including Bada Shanren’s Lotus and Shitao’s Scholar Gazing Far into the Landscape from an important private Singaporean collection; Wang Hui’s Landscape after Dong Yuan and Wang Jian’s Landscape after Dong Yuan from ‘The Estate of Frank J. Caufield’; and Xia Gui and Anonymous’s Landscapes from ‘The Mi Yun Hall’. Please click here to view the PDF catalogue.
