Lot Essay

Known for her humorous and vivid depictions of the human face, Xu Lele takes as her inspiration the art of Chen Hongshou which she reinterprets with contemporary sensibilities. Faces contains a collection of portraits that the artist admires across history and geography: not only figures from ancient Iran, Turkey or Egypt but also meticulously painted ladies from classical paintings become the basis of her creation.
