How Asia's Pioneers Inspired a Generation of Modern Masters

Hong Kong | September 2018

Find out how pioneering Asian artists who travelled to the West in the 1920s returned home to mentor and inspire a new generation. These post-war artists would go on to become a major force behind Asian art’s journey towards international art world recognition in the 20th century. Our upcoming Modern Art Evening Sale (30 September | Hong Kong) pays tribute to great modern masters such as Wu Dayu and Li Chun-Shan and post-war Asian artists such as Zao Wou-Ki, Chu Teh-Chun and Hsiao Chin.
