Travellers Over Waterfall by Zhang Daqian was the top selling lot at Bonhams Fine Chinese Paintings Sale in Hong Kong on 25 November, making HKD 2,100,000 against an estimate of HKD 400,000 - 600,000. In all, the sale made a total of HKD 26,377,500 (including buyer's premium).

Commenting on the sale, Consulting Head of Bonhams Fine Chinese Paintings Department Iris Miao said, "This was a dynamic and energetic sale with fierce bidding throughout and many lots selling for four or five times their estimates. We curated the sale carefully to offer fine paintings that were fresh to the market and of solid provenance and we are pleased that this was so well received by collectors. It was notable that miniature paintings had particular appeal – the cover lot Zhang Daqian sold for HKD 2.1M, and even smaller works by Qi Baishi for HKD 1,375,000 and Lin Fengmian for HKD 1M."
