LIN QINNAN (1852-1924) Landscape Inscribed and signed, with one seal of the artist Hanging scroll, ink and colour on silk 95.2 x 39.2 cm. (37 1/2 x 15 3/8 in.) 20th Century LOTS 3041-3063 PROPERTY FROM THE HUAI QIN GE COLLECTION This collection of paintings comes from Mr. Lui Shu Ying (1919 -2000). Lui started a finance company in Hong Kong at 16 and moved to Shanghai in the early 1940s to expand his business, returning to Hong Kong in 1949. While he remained active in investment activities, his daily life was completely immersed in the gardening of penjing (potted plants of the Lingnan school), appreciation and collections of Chinese paintings, jade and antiques. As a seasoned collector, Lui was very particular when sourcing good pieces of art. In the 1960s and 1970s, most of his collection of Chinese paintings, jades, porcelain and antiques were purchased from two major antique arts dealers in Hong Kong. A good number of his pieces were bought from Christie's Hong Kong when its office opened in 1986, while some were bought directly from artists such as Zhao Shao'ang, Huang Junbi, Yu Youren, Li Yanshan and Xie Zhiliu. Part of the Huai Qin Ge Collection was offered in Christie's Chinese Paintings auction in November 2011.
