The 2011 Autumn Sale of Beijing Poly International Auction has successfully ended with a transaction volume of 4.92 billion RMB, which defends Poly¡¯ position as the world champion of the Chinese art auction. Our combined value of art sold in 2011 reaches 12.1 billion RMB and it sets another record for the Chinese auction market. Xu Beihong¡¯s masterpiece, Cultivation on the Peaceful Land fetched the price of 266.8 million RMB, and that set a world record for the works of the father of modern Chinese painting. Emperor Qianlong¡¯s round imperial seal "Overlord Emperor" reached 161 million RMB, and broke the auction record of imperial jade seal and white jade.
