"Chinese Picasso" Sells For £2.64m - Salisbury Cameraman

Updated: Mar 24, 2020

Today I was filming for Media2U in Salisbury at the Woolley & Wallis Auction house.

I was there to film the auction of 'Grand View of Chao Mountain' by Zhang Da Qian, an artist known as the "Chinese Picasso".

It sold for a record amount of £2.64m (including buyer's premium). The record amount for his work previously sold at auction in the UK was £218,000.

I quickly edited the footage and supplied to the client and sent directly to my contacts at the BBC and ITV.

ITV Meridian ran an online piece straight away and that can be seen here.

The edited video from Media2U can be seen below.
