Post lot text
In 1982, the landmark exhibition Mestres da Pintura Chinesa Sec. XX (Twentieth Century Chinese Painting Masters) took place in the Jean Boghici Gallery in Brazil. It was the first large scale exhibition of Chinese art in the history of Brazil. The show was sponsored by Brazilian diplomat Josias Leão and his wife Ruth and featured important 20th-century Chinese ink paintings, such as works by Qi Baishi, Xu Beihong and others. These works came from various private collections in Hong Kong. Artists and collectors Ding Yanyong, Luis Chan, and renowned cultural figure Lau Siu Lui all supplied paintings to the exhibition, with many paintings dedicated to them.
The present lots were part of a private Brazilian collection, of which four works were showcased in the exhibition and illustrated in the exhibition catalogue. Apart from these four, the collector also acquired work by Lin Fengmian. The collection has remained in Brazil ever since, emerging in the market for the first time in four decades.
