Lot Essay

Born in Jiangsu in 1907, C. C. Wang was an artist, critic, and one of the most widely-acclaimed Chinese painting collectors of the 20th century. In the 1940s, Wang emigrated to the United States. Wang excelled in classical painting but his skill and knowledge did not hinder his success in breaking from traditional form. Wang’s desaturated hues create an impression of the abstract, however manmade structures such as houses take the viewer back to the realm of the real.
