Crags and Ravines Make A Marvelous View: A Special Exhibition of Ten Views of A Lingbi Rock
SEPTEMBER 21, 2020
As Poly Auction is approaching its 15th year, we have arranged a guided tour of our proudest auction items, inviting experts from different art departments to reveal the artistic values and the stories behind. Among these is Ten Views of a Lingbi Rock, sold at a jaw-dropping 1.21 million dollars in 1989 as it made its first appearance at an auction, setting a record for ancient Chinese paintings. This October, after drifting overseas for over 30 years, this painting will be presented at the grand occasion of Poly Auction’s 15th-anniversary auction ceremony. Last Sunday, September 20, we had the honour to invite Mr. Li Xuesong, a senior expert of Poly Auction to give us an online preview of this masterpiece and explore its wonders.
