The section on Chinese painting and calligraphy took the strategy of “improving the quality of the lots but reducing their numbers”, which attracted a large number of collectors. Eventually, the total sales volume for this section was 31.56 million yuan.

Huang Binhong’s landscape painting, Living in Seclusion among the Mountains and Streams, hit the highest price and sold for 2.875 million yuan.
