Framed; left side in ink in Chinese script: gift to Jiyuan Autumn 1955 signed and inscribed "together in New York"; lower right seal: Rong Bao Zhai - the print maker in Beijing. Zhang Daqian, together with his family and students, went to Dunhuang in 1941 to study the frescoes in the Mogao Grottoes. During the next two years, Zhang copied 276 frescoes. Despite repeated offers to buy his work, Zhang Daqian, who lived by selling paintings, would not sell anyone the copies of the Dunhuang frescoes. Rongbaozhai manager Wang Renshan, already a friend of Zhang's, suggested that the shop could try to copy the paintings using woodblock watercolor printing. The results surprised Zhang Daqian, who delightedly sent copies of the prints to his friends. Provenance: Wang Jiyuan was an established watercolorist and oil painter by 1919, and founded the renowned Tien Ma Society in Shanghai with Liu Haisu to promote Western Style. In the 1920s he lived in Europe and in the early 1940s he moved to the United States and established the School of Chinese Brushwork in New York.

You write many letters to me and I never get a chance to reply. I'm sorry. At the beginning of this month I went to the hotel in Nala. In Tokyo I got your letter telling me that the brush from Shi Yu had arrived. I'm glad to know you received it. I'm so busy I won't be able to come to New York. December 5th I plan to get on a boat from Yokohama and arrive in Mozi(California) and rest for two or three months. Then I will travel again in April or May. I received a lettter from Zijie, informing me you will have an exhibition at Zou Yu Shu, if that is true we will probably meet in Europe. A French gallery really wants my collection of Han Gan painting and is willing to pay $70,000 U.S., but they cannot pay yet because foreign exchange has not yet been granted. Today I wrote a letter asking them to return it along with the Shi Dao painting. I don't know what the situation is like in New York. The Ba Da Shan Ren painting printed in my collection has been bought by the Guimet Museum for $6,500, the price seems better than the U.S. and since I knew you were concerned I thought I would let you know. November, 20th; If you reply to this I will be in Tokyo in two weeks." Provenance: From a group of letters written by Zhang Daqian to his close friend and colleague Wang Jiyuan (1893-1975).

My liver problems have got worse. I've been sent to Santa Casa hospital for three weeks and came back on the 12th to the mountain. I still need peaceful rest and shouldn't do much drinking, the doctor's orders were very strict and it's making me frustrated. You've sent me two letters, I know you're worried and suggest I go elsewhere for treatment, and while I appreciate it, it's not possible in this short time frame. When my nephew came back he said a lot about how you care and how much of a good friend you are. Only you, my brother, Gao Ling Mei and Zi Jie are my true friends. The rest of them appear nice, but behind my back they laugh and tease me. My nephew has said many times how you truly love people sincerely, and I know he is telling the truth. It's a shame, while I was in the hospital my nephew brought me two messages from Wen Shu and his wife asking if they could stop renting me Shuang Tang. I asked my nephew to reply that they could stop renting though I think you already knew the situation. You are doing things fast, but me I'm naive and have been cheated. You always encourage me and I will not disappoint you. Let me know if Seo wants to go to Brazil, if you he does please ask Wen Shu for the wool blanket and Seo can bring it to me. April 22nd.
