Footnotes

  • Deng Bizhao (active 20th century) was a student of Wang Qi (1884-1937). The figures in the current lot do seem reminiscent of some of Wang's work. Note the idiosyncratic choices in how the garments and expressions are rendered, owing a debt to the figures of the early Qing painter Huang Shen.
