Not only was Cheong Soo Pieng well-known for his signature portrayal of Southeast Asian people with elongated limbs, almond-shaped faces and eyes, he was also highly versatile and experimented with various art forms from painting to sculpture and mixed media.
This painting shows Cheong's stylistic shift towards more refined lines and muted colours after his 2-year sojourn in Europe from 1961 to 1963. Most likely, it shows various scenes of Singapore including Singapore River and Sri Mariamman Temple, Singapore's oldest Hindu Temple.
