    PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF LUO WENBEN & LUO WEIFANG
    Luo Wenben (Lo Van Bon, 1920-2010) was a successful banker from Southern China. His wife, Weifang (Lo Wei Fong, 1923-2014), was a student who knew Xu Beihong. The couple eventually became avid art collectors and were acquainted with many artists.
