HAN MEILIN (BORN 1936)
PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF CHARLES ABRAMSCharles Abrams, who lived much of his life in New York, was an investment banker who traveled to China first in the mid-1960s, where he became deeply impressed with Chinese culture and the people. Far ahead of his time, Mr. Abrams was convinced that eventually China would become an important world power and a key supplier of goods, including high quality ones, for export globally. This ran counter to the prominent opinion at the time that China was too underdeveloped to be a significant exporter and foreign companies were largely interested in the country as a large consumer market. As soon as trade with China was resumed in 1972, as head of China Trade Corporation, Mr. Abrams quickly arranged to import and sell Chinese vodka, contemporary art, silk clothing, and Chinese foods. Among the many artists whose work he favored and acquired, he was very fond of Han Meilin’s lively paintings, which have remained in Mr. Abrams’s family.
