Christie's Unveils Highlights and Sale Calendar of Hong Kong Autumn Sales

Christie's autumn sales will be held in Hong Kong this November, presenting an exciting mix of Asian and Western Works. Last month, the auction house unveiled Su Shi's Wood and Rock, one of the world’s rarest Chinese paintings, which is going to lead the coming autumn sales with a whopping estimate of HK$400m (US$51m). In additional to Wood and Rock, Christie's will also offer other significant masterpieces. Here is the sale calendar for your reference. Let's take a look at some of the highlights from each sale.
