1 The Mandarin Hong Kong, January 25, 2013 In Early 2012, A Brother And Sister Clearing Out Their Late Mother's Attic In The London Neighborhood Of Hampstead Discovered What Appeared To Be A Cluster Of Old Chinese Scrolls At The Bottom Of A Steamer Trunk. By Chance, The Sister Had A Friend Who Worked At Christie's, So She Dropped Them Off--in Four Sainsbury's Grocery Sacks--at The Auctioneer's Salesroom On Old Brompton Road, Hoping They Might Take A Look And Tell Us If They're Worth Anything. When The Senior Specialist Of Chinese Classical Paintings Opened Up One Of The Silk Scrolls, He Nearly Went Into Cardiac Arrest. Unfurled Before Him Was An Image So Remarkably Rendered, It Immediately Reminded Him Of A Set Of Hanging Scroll Paintings Long Thought To Be Destroyed. Could This Be The Palace Of Eighteen Perfections? The Artwork, Created By The Qing Dynasty Artist Yuan Jiang In 1693, Was Believed To Have Been Secretly Removed From China During The Second Opium War In 1860, When Many Of The Royal Palaces Were Ransacked, And Lost Forever. As Staffers Scurried Around Unrolling The Scrolls, They Discovered Twenty-four Pieces, Each Almost Seven Feet Tall And In Immaculate Condition. Placed Side By Side, They Spanned Thirty-seven Feet, Almost Filling The Floor Space Of Two Workrooms. At Last, The Senior Specialist Could Confirm That This Was Undoubtedly The Mythical Work Described In All The Classical Chinese Texts He Had Spent Much Of His Career Studying. The Palace Of Eighteen Perfections Was An Opulent Eighth-century Imperial Retreat In The Mountains North Of Modern-day Xi'an. It Was Said To Be One Of The Most Magnificent Royal Residences Ever Built, With Grounds So Vast That One Had To Travel Between The Halls On Horseback. On These Ancient Silk Scrolls, The Intricate Pavilions, Courtyards, And Gardens That Meandered Through A Dreamlike Blue-and-green Mountain Landscape Were Painted In Colors So Vibrantly Preserved, They Seemed Almost Electric In Their Iridescence. The Auction-house Staff Stood Over The Exquisite Masterpiece In Awed Silence. A Find Of This Caliber Was Like Discovering A Long-hidden Painting By Da Vinci Or Vermeer. When The International Director Of Asian Art Rushed In To See Them, He Began To Feel Faint And Forced Himself To Take A Few Steps Back For Fear That He Might Fall Onto The Delicate Artwork. Choking Back His Tears, The Director Finally Said, Call Francois In Hong Kong. Tell Him To Get Oliver T'sien On The Next Flight To London.1 The Director Then Declared, We Need To Give These Beauties The Grand Tour. We're Going To Start Out With An Exhibition In Geneva, Then London, Then At Our Rockefeller Center Showroom In New York. Let's Give The World's Top Collectors A Chance To See It. Only Then Will We Take It To Hong Kong, And Sell It Right Before The Chinese New Year. By Then The Chinese Should Be Frothing At The Mouth In Anticipation. Which Is Precisely How Corinna Ko-Tung Came To Be Sitting In The Clipper Lounge Of The Mandarin Hotel In Hong Kong A Year Later, Impatiently Awaiting The Arrival Of Lester And Valerie Liu. Her Richly Embossed Business Card Listed Her As An Art Consultant, But For A Few Select Clients, She Was A Great Deal More Than That. Corinna Was Born To One Of Hong Kong's Most Pedigreed Families, And She Secretly Parlayed Her Extensive Connections Into A Very Profitable Sideline. For Clients Like The Lius, Corinna Did Everything From Refining The Art On Their Walls To The Clothes On Their Back--all In Service Of Getting Them Memberships At The Most Elite Clubs, Their Names Onto The Right Invitation Lists, And Their Children Into The City's Top Schools. In Short, She Was A Special Consultant For Social Climbers. Corinna Spotted The Lius As They Ascended The Short Flight Of Stairs Up To The Mezzanine Lounge Overlooking The Lobby. The Couple Cut Quite A Striking Picture, And She Had To Pat Herself On The Back For Th
