PROPERTY FROM A NEW YORK PRIVATE COLLECTION These two paintings were acquired when an American fashion designer met Lu Shoukun on December 7, 1965 at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, after she had become interested in his painting style. At this meeting, the artist wrote out his interpretation of each painting, shown below, and commented that they had been exhibited at the Hong Kong art gallery in the City Hall building. These paintings have remained since then in the designer’s family.
