50 Years New in Asia: Enlightenment in the Pink Lotuses of Zhang Daqian

Created in 1973 when Zhang was already an established painter, Pink Lotuses on Gold Screen embodies a lifetime of artistic practice with its seamless amalgamation of styles and approaches. With its alluring luster and its recreation of a scene of blooming lotus flowers, this painting – running across panels – is one of the great works of modern Chinese art from a creator who had reached a pinnacle of creativity and productivity. A masterpiece that encapsulates Zhang’s significant contributions to modern art, Pink Lotuses on Gold Screen makes its auction debut this spring on the occasion of Sotheby’s 50th anniversary in Asia.
