Sotheby's Brings Works by Impressionist, Surrealist and Contemporary Art Masters Together to Hong Kong

Auction houses in London are now gearing up for major sales of Western works of art in the coming February and March. In terms of promotion and publicity, Sotheby's has taken a step ahead of others by bringing some of the highlights for its coming Impressionist & Modern Art, Surrealist Art and Contemporary Art for public display. The Value has taken a sneak peek at the viewing.
