Uli Sigg

I went in search of the collection of Uli Sigg, the Swiss businessman who started collecting Chinese art as the representative of Schindler in the early 1980s, became Swiss ambassador in the mid-1990s and has sold/donated his collection to M+, the Herzog and de Meuron designed museum which is due to open in West Kowloon in 2018.   It’s on display in an exhibition space in Quarry Bay and provides a comprehensive narrative of Chinese art post-Mao.   I liked the early paint box from 1970:-
