Beijing Council International Auction Co., Ltd. was established in October of 2005, with a sanction from the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Industrial and Business Administration, and is a comprehensive auction company.
Council is primarily concerned with the auctioning of Chinese classic and Modern Fine Art, Chinese Antiques, and Chinese Modern oil paintings and sculptures. We also hold real estate auctions and other charity auctions.
Council always insists on credibility, integrity, and professional rules, following a 'put our heart and soul to serve' code of practice. Based on abundant expert and customer resources, Council has achieved extreme successes in the artwork auction industry.
Council's competitiveness in the artwork auction field has increased continuously based on a core team that consists of professional talents. The dedication to service and honesty, work, attitude, and self-discipline is winning the support and trust of the community. In 2006 and 2007, respectively, Council was awarded "the most influential auction" and the "auction company with a growing power"award" at the Chinese Art Annual Awards. In 2008, in "The millionaires Brand Preference Survey," Council obtained 'Best performance in the 2008 auction' award. Moreover, Council became the member of China Association of Auctioneers. In the beginning of 2009, Beijing Council International Auction Co., Ltd. and Japan Shinwa Art Auction, the most famous auction companies in Japan, formed a strategic partnership; the purpose of this move is significant. The Landscape (with a hammer price of 84,000,000 RMB) by Bada Shanren set a personal auction record, and a Chinese classical painting, calligraphy, and art world auction record in the spring of 2009. At the same time, Council International Auction Co., Ltd.(Hong Kong) has established and held a combined auction with Japan Shinwa Art Auction, the result was brilliant. In the autumn of 2009, the splash color masterpiece Switzerland Snowy Mountain (52,640,000 RMB) by Zhang Daqian also broke the artist's personal auction record. In the 2010 spring auction, Council sold 1,200 lots, with a total turnover of 1.085 billion RMB, which represents a 55% increase compared to last year, creating the highest price record of a single auction, and standing in the fourth place in the Chinese art auction industry, further illustrating the 'fewer but better' policy of Beijing Council. In 2011, the annual turnover was 4 billion RMB, including 2 billion RMB for the spring auction, which created the highest auction record for a single auction session. Moreover, Wang Shi Yuan by Wu Guanzhong had a bid of 5.175 million RMB. For the autumn auction, the total turnover was 18.15 billion RMB, with 24 lot items selling for a hammer price of over 1 million RMB, especially of calligraphy of the Yuan dynasty, which sold for over 10 million RMB, creating the auction record for calligraphy of the Yuan dynasty.
