Christie’s is pleased to present an important collection of prints and works on paper by Chinese-born French artist Zao Wou-Ki. Featuring 47 prints and five drawings, the collection showcases the artist’s career over five decades, during which he developed his distinct synthesis of European Modernism and traditional Chinese art and calligraphy. A dedicated printmaker, the collection charts his progress from the lyrically figurative works of the early 1950s to his embracing of abstraction – a creative trajectory that he would pursue for the rest of his life.

Estimates range from £1,200 to £22,000.

Please note that due to technical issues, Christie’s has exercised its discretion under condition C2 of the Conditions of Sale to extend the Prints & Works on Paper by Zao Wou-Ki online sale. Bidding on all lots will now start closing from 2pm BST on Monday 26th March 2018. Existing bids will not be affected.
