With strong sales in all categories, Kaminski Auctions set a new auction house record in 2012.  Five Chinese 20th century paintings by Qi Bashi sold at their Fine Asian Art and Antique Sale for a record $2.3 million dollars. All five paintings were 20th century scroll paintings of ink and color on paper, signed and sealed Qi Bashi.

The paintings were part of the outstanding art collection of Wen Tsan Yu, with works by many famous Chinese artists. Most paintings included a dedication by the artist to "Yu San", Wen Tsan Yu and his personal seal. Also in this sale, was his collection of exquisitely painted fans, the most important being a 20th century fan of paper leaf and featuring painting by Wang Yun (1888-1934) on reverse, with calligraphy by Zhu Nuzhen.

Kaminski Auctions holds four Asian auctions throughout the year.
