Ink master Li Keran (1907-89)'s 1964 painting, Wan Shan Hong Bian (Thousands of Hills in a Crimsoned View), fetched 184 million yuan ($28.7 million) at a Beijing sale in November. The piece has updated the artist's personal auction record.
The piece triggered a heated bidding race between three bidders who participated in China Guardian's "Grand View" night sale of Chinese paintings.
