Shanghai Art Fair, Asia's celebrated art exchange, with the largest scale, longest history and highest internationalization, is grandly held from November 14 to 17 in Shanghai MART (上海世贸商城). It presents domestic and overseas collectors a gorgeous art-collecting opportunity.
Shanghai Art Fair, established in 1997 and organized by Shanghai Cultural Development Foundation, has been successfully held 16 times. It not only has bridged the gap between the world and Shanghai, and the public and art, but also has shaped a paradigm for the domestic art fairs.
More than 1,000 art galleries, organizations, and agencies from over 50 countries and regions take part in the lively art gala. Many original artworks from world-class masters made their debuts in China and Asia through the great stage of Shanghai Art Fair.
These masters include Picasso, Rembrandt, Chagall, Dali, Renoir, Monet, Matta, Zhu Dequn, Qi Baishi, Xu Beihong, Zhang Daqian, and Fu Baoshi.
