CHRISTIES BREAK RECORDS IN GREAT SALES IN HONG KONG

SURPRISING RESULTS FOR MANY AND MYSELF!!!

 

Amorsolo is a Master of the Philippino art but Custodio, his student, not yet!!

Gabriel Custodio, oil on canvas signed and dated 1956, 95 x 125 cm



South East Asia is booming and we all know that. However, we are in the middle of a pandemic and it seems that there is so much money looking for homes that art is a main beneficiary of the whole situation.

Chinese artists sold very well, Philippino artists sold extremely well but the records and extremely high prices belong to Vietnamese artists with Le Pho, Vu Cao Dam and May Thu taking the spotlights.

I am stopping here with one mention and one example of a piece of art that sold four times over the last twelve years and appreciated in value from 2500 pounds to 45,000 pounds.

More on this painting that once belonged to myself in my blog of today!!
