Liang Ding Ming Ink & Color on Paper Painting

Lot 336: Liang Ding Ming Ink & Color on Paper Painting

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Painting by 20th Century Chinese Master Liang Ding Ming (1898-1959). Recognizing the talent of the young artist, Chiang Kai-shek sent Liang to study painting in France, Germany and Italy 1929-30. Upon Liang's return to China, Chiang built him a studio in the Nanjing Spirit Valley where Liang's work - from formal oil paintings to commercial and military illustration - prospered with his fusion of Western and traditional Chinese aesthetics. Liang moved to Taiwan in 1956 with the retreat of the Nationalist government. The subject matter of this painting, horses in motion, is one for which Liang is well-known ; c. 1945

Condition Report: good, the original scroll was trimmed for framing.  The silk was dry-mounted to foam board.  Although the piece displays well, there are several tiny holes here and there, small foxing spots, some faint moisture stains, as well as some minor crease marks here and there.
