Chang Yu Sanyu (Chinese, 1901 - 1966) Manner of: Vas de Lys sur Fond Marron. Oil on masonite, signed lower right, framed.

Motifs in Sanyu's lifelong oeuvre range from nudes, animals to flowers. All his works have minimal compositions, succinct lines as well as audacious and pure colours. Like a poem, his paintings can describe the most delicate feeling with minimal words. Born in a wealthy family, Sanyu began learning calligraphy in his teens under the guidance of Zhao Xi, a Confucian master of the late Qing dynasty.

25.5 x 27.75 inches framed; 23.5 x 15.75 inches board; 59.7 x 39.7 cm

Private dealer, USA

Very good condition; the board has a slight concave warp bending the corners away from the frame.
