Online, PA, USALive Auction
Painting Of River Signed Li Xiongcai (1910-2001):
Large brushstrokes define the trees and mountains while people and boats are painted with fine lines. Calligraphy and red artist's seals are on upper left. People with baskets and water buckets walk toward the river while fishing boats are anchored in the water.
Li Xiongcai (1910-2001) is equally skillful at painting figures, landscapes and flower & birds. He has carried on the traditions of the Lingnan school. During the long period of time, Lingnan made innovations in technique and developed its own style. Most of his best known works are executed on a large scale. He paints with bold fluid sweeps of the brush, creating an imposing atmosphere and suggesting great majesty and splendor.
Li Xiongcai uses powerful brush strokes to depict mountain scenery. Lofty peaks rise imposingly above layers of swirling mists and clouds. The pines in the foreground enhance the atmosphere of the serenity of the scene.
