Uyghur Maiden: painting by Jian bai Xu (Xu Jian Bai) 609. Uyghur Maiden: original oil painting on canvas by Jian Bai Xu (1955)

This is a lovely slice of life from mid-twentieth century in Western China.  Many Chinese artists paint portraits of the so-called minority peoples of China, but this is the only one of an Uyghur woman from the Muslim minority in the West of China, in Xinjiang that we have seen from that period.

We always appreciate portraits of China's minorities, in their native dress, but it is even more interesting to see portraits and other paintings from the time during which China was closed to the rest of the world, like is shown in this one.

Jian Bai Xu always paints exceptional portraits, and this is an exceptional painting by her.

Lotus and Swallow: hand-embroidery 124b. Lotus Blossoms with Swallow: Xiang Xiu hand embroidered & lightly painted landscape

This is one in a series of three embroidered works done by the embroidery studio whose work we have included in the catalogue.  It is done in the older Chinese brush and ink style of portraiture, which it mimics with embroidery and some minor shading with paint.  The scene depicts lotus blossoms, a classical Chinese artistic theme, with a swallow swooping down from the sky.  Perhaps he is going to land or just scoop up a mouthful of water from the pond.  Also, from the older Chinese style of brush-and-ink is the sparse use of colors other than black and white.  The only colors are pink and yellow with the lotus blossoms, using both colors, while the swallow uses only the yellow.

It is actually quite a beautiful scene in this style, and it is incredible that it is made from embroidery, not brush and ink.  The flowers show depth and variation of colors, and even the black and white parts of the scene show light and shadow.  A poem is inscribed in older Chinese characters to give it an even more ancient Chinese art feel.  This landscape scene comes matted and framed and measures 47.5 cm by 41,5, framed.  It, along with its other two mates, is an especially good choice, if you like the Chinese brush and ink style of painting.

750. Wan Lu Lake, original watercolor painting by Li Jin Ming (1978) 万绿湖

Wan Lu Lake, literally, forever green, is in Heyuan, in Guangdong.  Li was so taken by the beauty of the scene that he went home and crated this abstract impression of what he saw, emphasizing the blue green of the water, which reminded him of pure jade. 

We can see, already, at this stage of Liís artistic career, that he is becoming more free, in his style.  Instead of a realism or even impressionism, this painting is more representational with its two parts and empty spaces, a sign that Li was beginning to experiment with a different style.  Indeed, it could be that the lack of boundaries is, itself, a subconscious manifestation of the new freedom that he was feeling in the new China of Deng Xiao Ping, after the confinement that everyone felt during the Cultural Revolution of Mao.

Fishing Village: painting by Xue Sheng Tan 681. Fishing Village: original oil painting by Xue Sheng Tan (1984)

Since much of China was under water, millions of years ago, the coastal areas are always dotted with islands: mountain peaks that have managed to remain above water.  Also, just like in the Mediterranean, houses tend to have orange tile roofs.

Tan always uses soft pastel colls in his works, and this one with its turquoise blues in the sea and oranges on the shore is really pretty.
