CHICAGO — Among top results of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ March 20 Asian Works of Art sale was a scroll painting with the signature of Qi Baishi, which fetched $269,000 from an eastern Chinese buyer. Following record-breaking sales during New York’s Asia Week, this auction showed strong results across all media and time periods that demonstrate the return to buoyant buying by Greater China as witnessed industry-wide over 2016. Collectors from mainland China, Taiwan, Canada, the U.S. West Coast and the United Kingdom dominated participation in the March sale and pushed top lots, that included paintings, porcelain and jade, well past high estimates.
