HONG KONG.- Sotheby’s announces its Hong Kong Spring Sales to take place on 3 – 8 April 2020 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Leading up to the six-day sales, a major exhibition of Contemporary Art, Evening Sales and New York highlights will be hosted at Grand Hyatt during Hong Kong Art Basel week, offering an early preview of top-quality masterpieces that will lead Sotheby’s auctions this Spring.

Kevin Ching, CEO of Sotheby’s Asia, comments: “Following a stellar year as Asia’s market leader for the fourth year in a row, Sotheby’s is keeping up the momentum with another exceptional Spring sales series. The consistently robust performance of our Modern and Contemporary Art sales truly speaks for our unrivalled sourcing and curatorial capabilities. We are particularly excited to showcase some of the remarkable works from the forthcoming sales in a public exhibition in March, in tandem with the vibrant art month, when art enthusiasts and collectors from around the world convene in Hong Kong.”

Sanyu, Quatre Nus 1950s, oil on masonite, 100 by 122 cm Estimate upon request

Paintings by Chinese émigré artist Sanyu depicting a group of female nudes rarely appear on the market, not least those on a grand scale. By the time Sanyu created Quatre Nus in the post-war 1950s, life and art for the artist were reaching new expressive peaks, his awe of the female nude, in all its vitality, providing the impetus for an extraordinary body of work that his audience has never seen before. Quatre Nus is arguably the most alluring of these masterpieces.

Yoshitomo Nara, Keep Your Chin Up 2001, acrylic on canvas, 194 by 259.3 cm Estimate: HK$18,000,000 – 28,000,000
Following Yoshitomo Nara’s US$25 million world record set by Sotheby’s last autumn, over 5 times the previous world record, we present Keep Your Chin Up this Spring in Hong Kong. The monumental painting hails from Nara’s pivotal and most celebrated early 2000’s period and features a striking and rare composition featuring the subject in profile. Making its auction debut at Sotheby’s Hong Kong, the highly representative Keep Your Chin Up was exhibited in numerous institutional exhibitions and encapsulates the iconic and universally resonant oeuvre of one of the greatest living contemporary artists of our generation.
