  • Provenance
    Acquired from Butterfields & Butterfields in 1998

    Chuang Che was born in Beijing in 1934. Through his father Zhuang Yan (1899-1980), a noted calligrapher and one-time Deputy Director of the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Chuang was exposed to Chinese calligraphy and painting at an early age. Upon graduation from National Taiwan Normal University in 1958, he joined the Fifth Moon Group championing a modern approach to Chinese painting in Taiwan. In 1966 Chuang received a travel grant from the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Fund to study in the United States, where he has resided since 1973. Chuang's paintings and prints merge traditional Chinese painting techniques with the influence of Abstract Expressionism from the west. He once remarked: "No art can mature by itself; it has to absorb nutrition from the rest of the world's art. I have always had this ideal, to see a fusion of Chinese and Western painting."
