A table with a porcelain panel painted by Shi Lu will be available in Oakridge Auction Gallery’s upcoming sale. Born in Feng Yaheng, China, Shi got his start creating paintings in the traditional Chinese style. After joining the Communist party in 1946, he began executing works that embraced elements of Social Realism. Over the next decade, Shi began depicting members of the working class as well as sheep and goats in the mountains.
The first session of the Fall Fine Asian Art and Antiques auction will also offer an Imperial Chinese porcelain jardiniere. These decorative flower boxes have been popular since the beginning of the 17th century. The offered piece from the Kangxi period has steeply rounded sides rising to an everted rim. The top is painted with a band of flowers, clouds, fruits, and branches, while the body shows pine trees and bamboo shoots. Another lot of interest is a Chinese vase by Modern artist He Xuren, noted for his snowy landscape paintings and miniature calligraphy. The available vase shows a mountainous view with a fisherman on a boat. A poem about a lone fisherman is painted on the back. View each of these lots and register to bid on Bidsquare.
