    Sheng Liangxian, member of the Chinese Artists' Association (1962), was a professional Lianhuanhua artist. His work includes the very famous Dr. Bethune, introducing the doctor's life during the Sino-Japanese War in China, and other popular propaganda works during the Communist Era. During the 1990s, Mr Sheng also worked with a few overseas publishing houses, introducing tradition Chinese culture and history. His Trimetric Classic published in Singapore was chosen by UNESCO as a classic on Confucianism for the young. During his 30-year retirement, Mr Sheng created a large number of Chinese traditional paintings, genres including landscape, bird and flowers, and he was specialised in portraits.
    As the auction market for old Lianhuanhua works grows recently, Mr Sheng's works have become more and more popular amongst collectors. His watercolours featured in this section are all from a private collection of one of his descendants in New South Wales.

    Lianhuanhua, literally "linked pictures" or "serial pictures", is a palm-size picture book of sequential drawings found in China in the early 20th century, and was made extremely popular during the Communist era.

    盛亮贤,中国美术家协会会员(1962年),上海人民美术出版社连环画专业作者,担任创作组长、科长等职务。一生共创作连环画及其他作品共70多部,其中《木匠迎亲》获1961年第一次全国美术展优秀作品三等奖。其它代表作有《枯木逢春》、《林家铺子》、《白求恩》、《攻克水下堡垒》、《红色宣传员》等。九十年代后更为海外出版社创作例如为联合国教科文组织指定品德教科书的连环画《三字经》及三国人物造型。退休后30年精心创作中国画,山水花卉皆有涉略,尤工人物。近日随着国内连环画拍卖市场的升温,盛君知名度日盛。此次拍卖的多幅人物花鸟均为现住钮省的盛君后人所藏。
