In the 20th century, the Chinese artistic milieu entered a new epoch. At the watershed between preeminence of traditional painting and influx of western culture, artists were divided into preserving convention and propelling the transformation of traditional ink painting. Modern Chinese painting is therefore characterized by an unprecedented diversity of style and substance. This spring, Sotheby’s Hong Kong’s Chinese Paintings Department presents an outstanding selection of paintings on figure, floral and bird, and landscape subjects, attesting to the variety and versatility of Chinese art.
