We are still offering 250 works from our first catalogue introducing a rare collection of Chinese Contemporary Art from the post-Mao-era. It consists of oil paintings, ink and brush paintings and collages which had been gathered by a German collector during his many journeys to China in the 1980s and 1990s. The works had been purchased directly from the artists - which is reflected in many inscriptions or dedications. The collection formed at that time the basis for a large number of exhibitions that introduced Chinese Contemporary art to a German audience.

Among the 22 artists represented in this collection there are many renowned names of Chinese contemporary art as well as some that are about to be re-discovered. The collection is characterized by this particular era of then called "Experimental art", when young artists were seeking for Western influences, abstraction and re-interpretations of traditional art. This is reflected in the fact that eight of the featured artists participated in the important 1989 exhibition "China/Avantgarde" in Beijing. This collection is also particular for it mainly consists of rare works form the early stages of the artists' careers.

Our printed bilingual catalogues (engl./chin.)
