Lot Essay

The painting is dedicated to Erlene Fray, who was a student of Madeline Fu, who owned an art store and taught Chinese paintings in northern California beginning in the early 1960s. Ms. Fu was a close friend of Zhang Daqian, who lived in nearby Carmel for years, and it was during that time that Ms. Fray met him.
