A number of important works by prominent Asian artists from different backgrounds further explore the diversity of Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art and the "East Meets West" theme.

Titled "A Special Selection of Asian 20th Century Art," a day sale comprising a selection of works will bring together a pan- Asian group of the most influential artists of the age including Zao Wou-Ki, Chu Teh-Chun, Sanyu, Lim Tze Peng, Ting Yin- Yung, Walasse Ting and Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merprès, among others. All the featured works were executed on paper, arguably the most convenient and versatile medium in creating art.
