NEW YORK – Seventy-seven Chinese paintings, most of them from a collection in Amsterdam, comprise a Jasper52 online auction that will be conducted Wednesday, Sept. 26. Many of the paintings are done on paper from the 20th century, while a few are oils on canvas. Some are classic Chinese scroll paintings more than 5 feet in length. Absentee and Internet live bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers.

The sale will be highlighted by a scroll painting after 18th-century Italian-born artist Giuseppe Castiglione, also known as Lang Shining. As a Jesuit brother, Castiglione was sent to China, where his artwork drew the favorable attention of the Qianlong emperor and served as an artist for the court. He was able to forge a new style that combined elements with his Western training in art. His paintings were done with Chinese materials but often incorporate Western techniques of shading and atmospheric perspective, imparting a sense of realism to the native themes, according to China Online Museum (http://www.comuseum.com). The painting in the auction, which is on a 7-foot long silk scroll, was done on by an unknown hand. It carries an $11,000-$13,000 estimate.
