The Modern Day Auction will present exceptional works of art by figurative and abstract masters of the 20th century whose artistic lens shaped the way we appreciate nature, landscape, and the world around us. Anchoring the sale is Chu Teh-Chun’s Detour de la campagne, a resplendent encapsulation of the artist’s lyrical abstraction. Highlights of Southeast Asian figurative art such as Mai Trung Thu’s Mélodie and Washing by the stream by Hendra Gunawan go in hand with still life and landscape paintings including Le Pho’s Le vase de Rouen, Pang Jiun’s Spring in Li River, and Bernard Buffet’s Chilly, l’église et la mare Saint-Jean. Bringing it all together, showcasing the creative spirits and dynamism of modern art, the auction will also gathermaster works of the calligraphic gesture including Walasse Ting’s Untitled and Zen by Lui Shou-Kwan.
