Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    a private collection, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

    Exhibited:
    The Barr Gallery, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, August 1988

    In the 1960s, Xu Yisheng studied with Shi Lu (1919-1982) and He Haixia (1908-1998), two leaders of the Chang'an School of modern Chinese painting whose works celebrate the rugged landscape and people of Shaanxi province. Xu's expansive landscapes have been exhibited in China, Japan, Singapore, as well as in group exhibitions in North America. These smaller-scale paintings show Xu's appreciation for intimate, more personal spaces.
