Bonhams Chinese Paintings department offers the finest works of painting and calligraphy sought by international private collectors and global museums, with our auctions achieving highly impressive results in recent years.

Encompassing all genres, including landscapes, bird-and-flower, figures and calligraphy, Bonhams offerings range from important works by Ming and Qing dynasty artists, to highly sought-after works by mid-20th century masters such as Qi Baishi, Zhang Daqian, and Lin Fengmian, to modern and contemporary creations by artists at the cutting edge of Chinese painting and ink art.

Dedicated sales are held twice yearly in Hong Kong. Chinese paintings and calligraphy also constitute a major part of our bi annual Chinese auctions held in our New York salesroom.
