NEW YORK CITY — Chinese interest in abstract artist Zao Wou-Ki continues to give rise to exceptional auction results, and the case was no different at Doyle’s May 9 Post-War & Contemporary art auction as an oil on canvas by the Chinese/French artist brought $939,000 including buyer’s premium. The 21¼-by-31¾-inch painting over doubled the presale high estimate of $400,000. Finished on February 1, 1964, the painting came from the estate of Hilda Brown. Wou-Ki passed away in 2013.
