Lot Essay

This painting comes from the private collection of an American businessman and philanthropist. He became interested in Chinese paintings while travelling to Hong Kong between the 1960s to the 1980s. During this time, he came to know several important artists, such as Lin Fengmian and Luis Chan, and actively supported their work. The collector was also instrumental in charitable projects devoted to helping children.
