Lot Essay

NOTE:
The dedication of lots 1001-1003 refers to Zifen, also known as Yao Feng, a native of Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province. During the Republic of China, Zifen was active in the Shanghai art scene and made friends with famous figures in the field of calligraphy and painting. Perhaps because Wang Jiqian (commonly known as C.C. Wang) was his cousin, he became acquainted with disciples of Wu Hufan. He once participated in Lüyi Art Club and was a member of the club together with Xu Bangda and C.C. Wang. In 1941, he founded the Jingguanlou Calligraphy and Painting Office in Shanghai with C.C. Wang, Zhang Shoucheng and others. There are many folding fans dedicated to Zifen in the Baishaxuan collection and have been previously offered in Christie’s past auctions.
