Thank you all for your helpful responses. It's greatly appreciated. I also contacted the Chinese Painting team at Christies (emailing them photos) and they concur - this is a reproduction.
"Unfortunately, the work is a print, a reproduction made by National Museum of History to be specific, as seen in the titleslip attached. The artist’s inscription reads: painted by Beihong in Chongqing in the late Autumn of renwu year (1942). I hope it helps! Thank you and best wishes, Chinese Paintings department"
Upon closer inspection last night, I thought I could detect the halftone rosettes in some areas where the ink is a lighter color.
Ah, well...we do love this image, so there's still that!
