Late in the 920-lot Asian works of art sale at Skinner this weekend, a Nineteenth Century Korean folding screen practically levitated out of the room.
Estimated at just $400/600, the four-panel screen decorated with a landscape on one side and a dragon on the other elicited a bidding competition that ended only when the piece went to a phone bidder for $831,000. The screen was signed by Tan Won and was executed in ink and colors on silk.
A complete report will appear in a future issue.
