On May 18, Hong Kong Bonhams held a media preview of the Autumn Women and Chinese Art Special Auction. More than 60 works were submitted, including Zhang Daqian's "Reading Picture" valued at HK$5-6 million.
Tang Ye, an expert at the Chinese Antiques Art Department of Bonhams in Hong Kong, said that the biggest highlight of this auction is Zhang Daqian's "Reading Picture". The maid picture in it not only depicts the image of women in the heyday of Tang Dynasty, but also integrates the image of women in the Republic of China. Works that blend ancient and modern.
