PROPERTY OF A PRIVATE BRAZILIAN COLLECTOR (LOTS 1380-1381)
This impressive collection of splashed-colour works was acquired in 1974 by a private Brazilian collector at Zhang Daqian’s solo exhibition in São Paolo, by virtue of an introduction by Sun Jiaqin (1930-2010). Each lot is accompanied by a detailed certificate in Portuguese from the Brazilian government, signed by Sun Jiaqin stating that each painting was directly acquired from the exhibition.
Sun Jiaqin (1930-2010), sobriquet Yeyun, born in Dalian, became the last student of Zhang Daqian in 1963. In 1964, he resigned from his teaching post at National Taiwan Normal University to follow the artist to Brazil, where he studied painting in Zhang’s São Paulo studio, the Garden of Eight Virtues.
