Controversy around auction of Chinese bronzes in Paris

A Chinese bidder sabotaged the auction of two Chinese bronzes with a false 14 million-euro bid for each during the “auction of the century” held in Paris in February 2009. The bidder claimed it was an act of patriotism because the bronzes were looted from China during the Anglo-French allied invasion of 1860.

Pierre Bergé , Saint Laurent’s partner and owner of the bronzes later told NTDTV that Chinese people should thank him because the bronzes could have been destroyed during the Cultural Revolution if they were left in China. He also said that the day the Chinese regime respects human rights is the day he will return the bronzes to China.

Bergé was widely quoted as saying, “I am willing to return the heads on one condition,” he said to reporters via an interpreter, on Feb. 23, “that the Chinese government respects the human rights of its people, gives liberty to Tibet and welcomes the Dalai Lama.’’
