9 Lessons About the Chinese Art Market From the Sotheby’s Hong Kong Fall Sales:

1. HONG KONG (AND CHINA) EXIST IN THE REAL WORLD, WHERE THE ECONOMY AFFECTS THE MARKET

2. WHILE SPECULATORS RETREATED, GENUINE COLLECTORS AND INVESTORS REMAINED

3. UNDERBIDDERS PROVED NOT TO BE UNDERDOGS, AND REVEALED AN INTERNATIONAL MARKET

4. CHASING CHINA’S NEW COLLECTORS CAN LEAVE YOU HIGH AND DRY  

5. BLUE-CHIP CONTEMPORARY CHINESE STARS WERE CONFIRMED

6. THE FLIGHT TO VALUE DID NOT, HOWEVER, EQUAL A REJECTION OF EMERGING TALENT

7. IF YOU GREW BORED BY THE PACE, YOU COULD ALWAYS GO TO THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN SALES-

8. BUT THE HEART OF THE MARKET WAS FINE CHINESE PAINTING

9. DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER
