       Highlighting Christie’s autumn sale of Chinese Modern Paintings is a series of significant splashed ink works from Zhang Daqian’s late career. The splashed ink series began as early as 1957, when his vision was affected by diabeticretinopathy (ruptured capillaries in the retina), which served as a catalyst for this now signature style. His techniquegradually developed over years with this landmark technique coming into full fruition while in Brazil at his studio (theGarden of Eight Virtues)

       Created in 1979, at a time when Daqian had been practising his splashed ink painting technique for over ten years,Mountains Amidst a Sea of Clouds (scroll, mounted and framed, ink and colour on paper, 68.8 x 136.5 cm, estimate:HK$12,000,000-18,000,000/US$1,600,000-2,300,000; illustrated above) depicts two contrasting landscapes. Thelower part accurately depicts towering mountains, craggy hills, flowing waterfalls, clusters of pines, and lingeringclouds, while the top features the splashed ink technique of fluid shades of blue to represent undulating clouds andmist. Despite these compositional contrasts, Mountains Amidst a Sea of Clouds is painted in complete harmony,exemplifying the masterful techniques that characterise Zhang Daqian’s late works.

        Created in splashed ink and colour, Boats Under a Lush Mountain fuses hues of green, blue, and black to create one continuous visual form accentuated with houses and pavilions that resonate literati paintings (scroll, mounted andframed, ink and colour on paper, 64 x 134.5 cm; estimate: HK$2,000,000-3,000,000 / US$260,000-390,000; illustratedon the bottom of the previous page).
