Snowy Mountain by Cui Ruzhuo
Real life is so much better than make believe. The painting above, Snowy Mountain by Chinese artist Cui Ruzhuo, sold at auction for US $3.7 million in Hong Kong earlier this week, has gone missing.
Security film shows a guard kicking the painting into a pile of trash; later janitors tossed the trash and likely Snowy Mountain as well. Interested parties are combing the local landfills, I suspect that it was stolen, but that appears to be a minority opinion. Should you happen to find it, Poly Auction in Hong Kong would love to hear from you.
