2023 Singapore China Rare Art Auction

Lot3209 Li Keran's "Red Mountains"
Size: 75.5 × 45.5cm
Starting price: SGD 10790000
Transaction price: SGD 38000000 (equivalent to RMB 202.83 million)
Collection description: In "The Red Mountains and the Colorful Forest", the towering peaks occupy the center of the picture; A large number of vermilion dots were used, with a strong ink background. The red trees depicted in the foreground of the picture were like silhouettes; In the center of the painting, there are white waterfalls, white streams, and white tiled houses hidden behind them; The inscription 'The mountains are red, the forests are stained' is written in the upper right corner of the painting; At the bottom right of the screen, there is a "Sending Love" Zhu Wen seal opposite to the Bai Wen seal. The book 'The Red Mountains Bloom Through the Forest' carries a strong emotional color, expressing revolutionary emotions. Coupled with the author's own inner feelings about the mountains and rivers, through the systematic portrayal of the mountains and rivers, it creates a magnificent and magnificent red landscape artistic conception. The picture is bright red, containing infinite spiritual beliefs and implicit tension in the tranquility.
On the basis of sketching landscapes from life, Li Keran made breakthroughs and innovations, boldly combining Chinese red with Chinese ink, creating a passionate patriotism. The mountains with a strong sense of color in the distance complement the main peak of Chinese red in the middle, emitting the author's broad mindedness and strong sense of nationality; The graceful trees in the vicinity and the pale yellow tender shoots above make the entire picture reflect the longing for life and the praise for life; The images in the painting all reveal an upward vitality. The artistic conception expressed in the screen is not only a representation of the appearance of mountains and rivers, but also a concrete representation of the spirit of the Red Revolution.


Lot3002 Zhang Daqian's "The Picture of Giant Clear Peak"
Size: 168.5 × 85cm
Starting price: SGD 10790000
Transaction price: SGD 28000000 (equivalent to RMB 149.45 million)
Collection Description: Zhang Daqian's "Imitation of Juran Qingfeng Painting" was created in the mid to late 1940s and was once seen in the "Special Collection of Famous Calligraphy and Zhang Daqian's Early Landscape Paintings". The exquisite and complex paintings can make Juran tie his hands and mountain woodcutters avoid the mat, making it a rare and unforgettable masterpiece after Zhang Daqian entered the artistic maturity stage in the 1940s.
Zhang Daqian's friend Xie Zhiliu also wrote a postscript on the painting: "The pen of this old friend Zhang Daqian at the age of 49 is extremely rare, and it is a masterpiece of his life. It is already early summer, and Xie Zhiliu watched the scene. The seal text: Xie Zhi, Zhiliu." This picture imitates Juran, and first of all, it refers to the use of Juran's skilled long linen brush technique. However, Juran's long cloak and hemp texture (often painted in silk), although still characterized by its freshness and smoothness, is mainly characterized by a straight center forward. The use of a round pen with a center point and easy side strokes to split and carve is the location of the ancient and new transformation in this painting. If long linen is draped on paper, the water absorption of the paper can create a dry and moist contrast between ink and water, which can easily create a vast and moist picture, which also opened the precedent for the landscape of ink and water in the Yuan Dynasty. Therefore, although this paper version of the "Qingfeng Painting" utilizes the technique of juran's long covered and bald brush mixed with dots and moss, its brushstroke charm is dense and boundless, especially the wild and rich taste of Wang Meng's landscape paintings from the Yuan Dynasty. This "Imitating the Giant Ran Qingfeng Painting" is a highly representative masterpiece of Zhang's Ming Dynasty's construction of inn roads and secret passage through old warehouses, resembling the ancient and the new, integrating the ancient and opening up the present.

With both hands holding Zen meditation seals, sit cross legged on a double layer lotus platform.
