Housed for more than a decade in La Moutarderie Nationale – a former mustard factory in Brussels - the Gillion Crowet Collection captures one of the most important chapters in Chinese art history. In this episode of Expert Voices, learn how the collection was assembled by the discerning vision of Baroness Gillion Crowet and discover how works by Liu Ye, Zeng Fanzhi, Zhang Xiaogang and Yue Minjun document a transformative period in Chinese society. The prestigious collection features 30 masterworks that will be offered in our upcoming auction Moutarderie Nationale: The Gillion Crowet Collection (6 October | Hong Kong).
