On 27 February, Sotheby’s welcomed collectors and curators in the Bay Area to preview the Chew Family Collection at NanHai Art. Surrounded by the masterworks of Chinese paintings, Artist and Sotheby’s Senior Consultant Arnold Chang gave a presentation on The Life and Art of Zhang Daqian with Professor Mark Dean Johnson from the San Francisco State University. The seventy-six paintings and calligraphy assembled by two generations of the Chew Family will be later on public exhibition during Sotheby’s Asia Week. The collection has added luster of the family’s lasting friendship with one of the most illustrious modern Chinese artist Zhang Daqian. Highlight includes the Water And Sky Gazing After Rain In Splashed Color, a monumental horizontal scroll that was never published or exhibited to the public before.
