Among the works presented at the auction and prior to 1949, one of the best can be described as the work of the Taiwanese artist Chen Chenbo (Chen Chengbo, 1895-1947), entitled «The Sound Wave» (Maobitou Cape), the estimated 2-3 million (hereinafter, all prices are in U.S. dollars. - Ed .). It was written in 1939, this time Chen has lived in Taiwan and written landscapes to open air in different parts of the island.

The author brought dramatic situation in the typical portraits of characters that is in keeping with the promotional period, the art of the Cultural Revolution. However, it should be noted that he used a cold color tone, which strongly departed from the principles of «redness», «brightness» and «vitality», which were popular during this period. Organizers expect the auction, that want to acquire this historic and epic canvas will be quite a lot.

At the auction will be works written by Chinese artists living outside the country, particularly the U-Ji Zhao (Zhao Wuji, Zao Wou-ki - kind of. 1921), moved to Paris in 1948.

A striking example of this style is a canvas «Untitled. 1958-1 »(estimeyt 386-580 thousand dollars).

strings in the work performed after the Cultural Revolution, interesting «View of the River Litszyan» (0773-1 estimeyt million dollars) I brush Guan-Zhong (Wu Guanzhong, family. 1919), written in 1975. This product can be described as a mature 56-year-old wizard. His style is quite eclectic and combines features of traditional Chinese and Western art.

Very interesting, one of the most modern in the auction of the works - written in 1998 by three-surrealist artists who call themselves 3W. It is called «the Great collector» (estimeyt 103-155 thousand dollars), and at first glance it is a parody of a feudal society where the norm is considered to be the superiority of men over women. But in fact the main idea of this picture is very different. On the canvas depicts Duan Fang (Duan Fang, 1861-1911) - a prominent politician of the late period of Qing Dynasty, which is also famed as a collector and connoisseur of antiquities archeology. Two girls sitting around him, represent fine works of art, and the dollar in the background represents extensive financial costs needed to create a superb collection of antiquities. 3W works of well-known, recognizable by the abundance of allusions and a typical example of postmodern art in which objects from the past are used as an explanation to this. Portfolio trio 3W, has developed its own style of Chinese art, are in great demand by collectors all over the world.
