|A Wu Guanzhong painting of Hong Kong was owned by a corrupt police chief|
|Wu Changshun was apparently worth 426 million yuan|
Other famous paintings and calligraphy included those by Zhang Daqian. One of his paintings called A Copy of Juran's Landscape was sold at China Guardian's autumn auction for 103.5 million yuan.
Also in the collection were 11 paintings by Fan Zeng, a master of traditional Chinese painting. Wu also amassed hundreds of antiques, including a blue and white 15th century porcelain jar from the Ming dynasty, Buddha statues and ornaments.
|He also had several Patek Philippe watches and other brands|
Going through this huge list of items not only demonstrates Wu either had a lot of money to burn, or his bribers knew exactly what he wanted in terms of gifts. It seems like brand names were a must, and he had very good taste.
Oh well. That's all in the past now with Wu languishing in jail.
But it also makes you wonder, if there are other fatter cats...
