Condition Report: Signed and dated “TAWEE 1973” on lower right

Notes: Tawee was born in Lampoon Province and graduated from Silpakorn University, Bangkok and the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome, Italy. Tawee Nandakwang was recognised and regarded as one of the Thailand’s leading artists in Thai contemporary art. His life and works have been recorded in Thailand’s history of modern art. A pioneer in approaches to painting still-life, portraits and landscapes, he spent his entire life consistently creating excellent works. He was rightly named Thailand’s outstanding artist, a National Artist (1990) and also in the same year, he was named ASEAN Awards Outstanding Artist in Visual Arts. Tawee’s initial creative works from his schooldays between 1947 and 1948 can be classified as Impressionism. Tawee was greatly inspired by the French school of Impressionism partly due to the influence of Silpa Bhirasri who introduced his students to modern art. Among his masterpieces was Lotus painted in 1956 which won him a gold medal in the seventh National Exhibition of Art. Tawee is also influenced by the Western style called Cubism.
