A former Swiss ambassador, Uli Sigg, is donating nearly $163 million dollars worth of Chinese contemporary art
to a Hong Kong museum that is scheduled to open in 2017. The privately owned collection contains nearly 2,200 pieces of art. The body of art features well-known artists including Zeng Fanzhi, whose notable commissions are recognized by his paintings containing men in suits and wide plastered smiles, as well as Zhang Xiaogang’s ghostly family portraits.
