Richard Lin Valued on Both Sides of the World
Yesterday’s comments on the Richard Lin market were slightly premature. Alongside the sales in Hong Kong at Bonhams and Christie’s was this work at Phillips Evening sale that made HKD 4.5m putting it just behind the work at Christie’s in value.
Back in London, Colin Gleadell points out, buyers and sellers have not given up on Lin either. Christie’s day sale of British art had a clutch of six works by Lin owned by Jasia Reichardt. The art critic’s trove had never been shown before. The works carried a combined estimate of £96,000 but sold for £352,500.
