'A Lady with a Fan'

This original watercolor/block-style painting depicts a woman, seated by a plant stand and fanning herself with a traditional folding fan. She is beautifully attired in a deep blue dress with white decoration. It has a very modern and contemporary style, edgy, yet refreshing in its simplicity. This painting is well-signed with the artist's chop marks. The painting sight size under its double-mat in ivory with a black bead is about 10" square, and the frame measures 14.5" square. This watercolor is in excellent original condition. The colors are superb, and the imagery is quite pleasing. Hu Yongkai is one of the most popular Chinese artists among Western collectors.
