The 2022 Spring Auctions Series will be a feast for those whose appetites are in their eyes. Here’s what Sotheby’s Hong Kong will be bringing to the big event: an array of modern and contemporary art by masters including Pablo Picasso, Chen Yi-Fei, and Chu Teh-Chun, along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, and Zeng Fanzhi; a journey through Chinese art history, for the first time reuniting a magnificent Qing-dynasty soapstone seal with a painting by Leng Mei that bears its imprint, plus an important work of calligraphy and landscape by the Qianlong Emperor and Dong Bangda, and a Zhang Daqian landscape that pays tribute to Wang Ximeng’s legendary Song-dynasty masterpiece.
The weeklong series represents the convergence of fine art and the world of luxury as the very best of jewellery, watches, sneakers and handbags will go under the hammer. The De Beers Blue will be one of the most valuable blue diamonds ever to be offered at auction, together with The Carmine Rose, an extraordinary ‘Imperial Green’ jadeite bead necklace, vintage Patek Philippe timepieces, the most sought-after bottles from Burgundy and Bordeaux, the rarest Nike SB Dunks in the brand’s history, and coveted handbags from Hermès, all present the pinnacle of creativity and craftsmanship.
