Modern Evening Auction 7 October 2022 • 6:30 PM HKT • Hong Kong

T he Modern Evening Auction will feature artworks that capture the multifaceted, creative spirit of artists working around the world during the 20th century, pioneers who broke past the boundaries of established norms to create a vision of modern and post-war art. Leading the sale will be Sanyu’s masterpiece Branches, a remarkable achievement amongst his entire body of flower works, an autobiographical expression full of hope for new spring, the early promise of Sanyu’s plum branches traces their origins to the artist’s cultural roots, set in a composition that suggests Western geometric abstraction. Alongside Sanyu’s Branches, we celebrate the depiction of enduring love with Pablo Picasso’s Femme assise à la galette des rois, an extraordinary portrait of his wife Jacqueline Roque portrayed in a regal palette of green and gold. Other highlights include Peinture 195 x 130 cm, 3 décembre 1956 by Pierre Soulages, 12.02.65 by Zao Wou-Ki, Pansies by Georgette Chen, and Joan Miró’s Personnage dans la nuit, each representing the encapsulation of century-defining ideas. This auction will be a wonderful opportunity for collectors to engage in creative encounters with the most significant names from the modern era.
