HONG KONG.- As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to generate headlines around the world, Sotheby’s announced the sale of three artworks which will benefit efforts tackling the outbreak across Greater China, one of the most affected regions. The Modern Asian works – Chu Teh-Chun’s calligraphy La Lune, Pang Jiun’s Monet’s Garden and Sophie Chang’s Source of Hope – will be auctioned at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Modern Art Evening Sale, relocated to New York on 16 April 2020. A portion of the sale proceeds of the three works will be donated to support three separate organisations in Greater China endeavouring to combat the outbreak of the virus. La Lune and Source of Hope will be offered without reserve.

Sotheby’s would like to thank Ms Tung Ching-Chao, wife of Chu Teh-Chun, and Espace Nelombos for donating La Lune, and the respective consignors of Monet’s Garden and Source of Hope for their generosity.

Vinci Chang, Sotheby’s Head of Modern Asian Art, commented: “The coronavirus outbreak over the past few months has pulled at our heartstrings, and our support and thoughts go out to all those affected by the virus, from patients and front-line medics to our families and friends.”
