THE LIFE OF LIN FENGMIAN
Lin Fengmian was one of twentieth-century China’s most importantmodern artists, achieving a unique synthesis of Chinese and European approaches to painting. Educated in France from 1919 to 1925, he was among the first Chinese painters to be exposed to the avant-garde trends that swept post-war Europe. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the artist passing this year, we are presenting a body of works by Lin Fengmian from different periods of his life, sourced from collections all over the world. These paintingscover some of the most iconic subject matters and compositions, such as Opera Figures (Lots 1065, 1142, 1198), Seated Lady (Lot 1139-1141, 1147), Landscape (Lot 1064, 1146), Birds and Flower (Lot 1063) and Still Life (Lot 1143). They testify to the artist’s rich and diverse artistic career. We hope to celebrate the life of a Chinese painting giant through these paintings.
