    Pre-Lot Text

    This collection of paintings (lots 842-844) belonged to the collection of Dong Baixun (1912-1994), who was a representative of the National General Assembly during the Republic period. In 1951, Dong Baixun moved to Taiwan, where he eventually became a professor at the National Tsing Hua University. Later, he was appointed a member of the Constitutional Government Discussion and Planning Committee, where he was an integral part of talks concerning politics and education. As an aficionado of poetry and calligraphy, Dong Baixun was acquainted with many artists, including Yu Youren.
