Bonhams Chinese Paintings auctions offer an exemplary range of paintings and calligraphy, spanning centuries and encompassing all genres. We hold dedicated live sales twice a year in Hong Kong and targeted single-owner sales in both Hong Kong and New York, as well as online sales throughout the year.
Our extensively researched and carefully curated auctions have achieved outstanding results in recent years, drawing global museums and private collectors alike. Covering centuries of Chinese history, the department showcases masterpieces by Ming and Qing dynasty masters such as Wen Zhengming and Wang Hui, as well as key 20th century artists Qi Baishi, Zhang Daqian, Fu Baoshi, Xu Beihong, Lu Yanshao, Pu Ru, Wu Guanzhong and Lin Fengmian.
In addition, Chinese paintings and calligraphy constitute a major part of our biannual Chinese Works of Art auctions in New York, Los Angeles, London and Sydney, offering our clients and collectors unrivalled opportunities to both buy and sell their collections during each calendar year.
