Chinese 20th century art and contemporary art
The blend of Western and Chinese art leads to great works. The session 20th Century & Contemporary Chinese Art Evening Sale will present different styles of oil paintings from famous painters. In this category, representative masterpieces by Zhang Enli and Chen Yifei will be showcased.
The oil painting, No Solution, is one of the most important representative works created by Zhang Enli in his early period. Through new expressionism, the painting captures the daily life of ordinary people in the metropolis. It reflects the helplessness and disorder of life in the period of social transition in the 1990s. Water Town by Chen Yifei shows the peaceful and tranquil scene of a southern Chinese riverside town.
