A recognized Chinese painter of the 20th century, Huang Zhou was a modern artist who drew inspiration from the ancient masters. As he developed his style, Huang drifted away from traditional methods of Chinese art and immersed himself in Expressionism. An example of Huang’s work will be offered in the upcoming Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy auction, presented by Oakridge Auction Gallery. The available lot is a watercolor painting, depicting a woman with two donkeys and a dog. Another key watercolor by Zhang Daqian. Spending his early years studying and copying old master paintings, Zhang was both an infamous forger and an innovative artist. His work was celebrated as a representation of Chinese tradition. The available piece shows a scholar walking among trees. Visit Auction Daily for more information on Zhang Daqian.
The auction features a watercolor and ink on paper painting by Guan Shanyue. To gain a deeper understanding of sceneries, Guan traveled from the United States to Vietnam, Poland, Japan, and several other countries. The offered painting depicts blooming plum trees. Also presented are scrolls, fans, books, calligraphy, and manuscripts. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
