HONG KONG.- The Hong Kong based art auction house, Tiancheng International will start its Spring Auctions 2013 in April at Hong Kong. This season, a new category, Fine Chinese Paintings will be introduced in this Spring series of auctions, together with Modern and Contemporary Art Sale to be presented on 6 April at The Connaught Room, 1/F of Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong. Public preview will start from 4 to 5 April. Details of Jewellery and Jadeite Spring Sale will be announced later.


In Spring 2013, Tiancheng International will have its inaugural sale of Fine Chinese Paintings featuring over 120 artworks from both Classical and Modern Chinese masters, which include Zhang Daqian, Wu Hufan, Qi Baishi, Xu Beihong, Fu Baoshi, Huang Binhong, Lu Yanshao and Lin Fengmian. All lots come to the market with a combined estimate of nearly HK$ 100 million.

• WU HUFAN (1894-1968), WILLOW TREES AGAINST SPRING CLOUDS. Ink and colour on paper, hanging scroll, 132 x 66 cm. Signed, inscribed, with a dedication, and one seal of the artist. Further inscribed, and with three seals of Yang Renkai. Dated 1939. Estimate on request

• FU BAOSHI (1904-1965), POETS. Ink and colour on paper, handscroll, 45 × 136 cm, 1943. Estimate on request

Since early 2011, “Contemporary Literati” has been the main theme for modern and contemporary art at Tiancheng International, as an attempt to introduce culture-centric context to a secondary market that focuses on Western influences and forms of expression. The art market is stirring up a storm in 2013 as collectors and market mentality gradually take on new directions. We take this Spring Collection as an opportunity to lend an extension to “Contemporary Literati”, by including the works of such modern art pioneers as Lin Fengmian, Yan Wenliang, Wang Jiyuan and Liao Chichun, reformists including Ding Yanyong, Ding Xiongquan and Huang Yongyu, and young artists like Fung Ming Chip, Wang Tiande, Peng Wei and He Jun - as a means of unveiling a change and shattering the conventions of expressionism, media, style and time.

• LIN FENGMIAN (1900 - 1991), HYDRANGEA. Chinese ink and color on paper, 40 x 50 cm. Estimate: HK$ 1,000,000 – 1,200,000/US$ 130,000 – 155,000

• WU GUANZHONG (1919 - 2010), PINE FOREST. Ink and color on paper, 68 x 68 cm. Estimate: HK$ 900,000 – 1,500,000/US$ 116,000 – 193,500

In November 2012, Tiancheng International’s Jewellery and Jadeite Autumn Sale received an encouraging result with a piece of jadeite bead necklace realised HK$106.2 million setting a world auction record for a piece of jadeite Jewellery at the time. This spring, Tiancheng International continues to offer top-quality jadeites, gemstones and diamonds, together with pieces from renowned jewellery houses and independent jewellery designers.
