The piece was purchased by art dealer Michael Goedhuis of Goedhuis Contemporary, the auction house said.
A bronze work by Zhang Huan, "Peace" (2001), which depicts the naked artist as a life-size knocker positioned to swing headfirst to ring a massive bronze bell inscribed with the names of eight generations of his ancestors, was bought by a private collector for $ 408,000.
Therefore, people like Michael Goedhuis are inventing the new value of Chinese contemporary ink painting in the west. Are we falling behind him in 'real culture revolution'?

Michael Goedhuis is clearly a prominent figure in promoting Chinese contemporary ink painting. He has spent two decades specializing in early Asian art. He founded Michael Goedhuis Ltd. in London?in 1989, inaugurating the New York space in January 2002. The Gallery's principal activities today are the promotion of the best Chinese contemporary art as well as Chinese works of art from the Neolithic Period to Modern. Their current program concentrates on directing attention to the contemporary Chinese ink painters working throughout the world today. Many of us maybe know his name by the world renowned Estella Collection. Mr Goedhuis is now amassing a new collection of Chinese ink painting. In his view, the contemporary ink painting represents the richness of Chinese past and creates the new language out of the past.
Contemporary Chinese art is at the international standard compared with other art from Asia. China is now very relevant to everything goes on in the world. Thus, the feeling of self-confidence and national essence delivered by the contemporary ink painters are reconnecting with the Chinese history and reconnecting with the world. Mr Goedhuis believes the contemporary ink painters have a very solid understanding of the Chinese literati culture, and an in-depth understanding of the great masters' works in Song and Yuan Dynasties. They are in the similar positions as the western painters in the early twentieth century. These contemporary ink painters are also reflecting the present in terms of transforming the Chinese past into the present.
Mr Goedhuis believes that China is currently undergoing a true 'Cultural Revolution', which is not confined to art but is manifest in film, music, theatre, design, dance and literature and is leading to a rapid expansion of investment in art by a new generation of collectors.
Mr Goedhuis strongly believes that Chinese contemporary art is still at an early stage of recognition both in Asia and the West. It therefore offers exceptionally exciting and fruitful opportunities for collectors and museums. It is the objective of Michael Goedhuis Ltd. to participate fully in restoring important works to committed institutional and private collections in China, as well as continuing to stimulate interest amongst museums in the West.
Over the last 15 years, Mr Goedhuis has established himself as a pioneer in the field of modern and contemporary Chinese art, carefully identifying the best and most original artists working today. The gallery now represents 35 ink artists from different generations (from the 1930s to the 1970s). He stimulated interest among most promising and emerging artists as well as the most established masters from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Most of the artists represented by Mr Goedhuis have a very dynamic and pluralistic background and life experience.
Michael Goedhuis states, "Yao Jui-Chung's aesthetic trajectory is profoundly original in its choice of technique and subject matter but deals with the ever-present tension in Chinese art between the past and the present.
In general, Mr Goedhuis believes the ink painting is the next big thing in the contemporary art world. It is interesting intellectually, culturally, aesthetically, and also from a commercial point view.
