Han notably created the Fuwa (good-luck dolls) mascots for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. 'The flower of my art is rooted in Chinese soil,' he explained, 'but it is nurtured by rain, sunshine and dew from other countries.' Born in 1936 in Jinan, China, he studied at the Central Academy of Arts and Design in Beijing, graduating in 1960. During the Cultural Revolution of the late 1960s, the artist was arrested for befriending foreigners and spent nearly five years imprisoned. After his release in 1972, Han devoted himself to producing beautiful objects devoted to animals. He currently lives and works in Beijing, China. -

          Est: £10,000 - £15,000

          HAN MEILIN (b. 1936- ) INK PAINTING OF A HORSE ????1936- ? ??? ???? ink and colour on paper, dated to the cyclical Wu Yin year, signed and three seals of the artist, unframed (71cm x 138cm) Qty: (1) Provenance: Private collection, Bath; Acquired directly from the artist (by repute) Note: Han Meilin (b. 1936) is a celebrated Chinese painter, known for his ink paintings of charming and loveable animals, and most recognised today for his creation of the Fuwa dolls for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The horse has been an independent genre of Chinese painting since the Tang dynasty (608-917). Han Meilin's bold and playful interpretation of the genre is imbued with the vigorous spirit of the ancient rock painting found in Helan Mountain, Yinchuan, Ningxia. This artistic repertoire has inspired the artist since his first visit in the 1980s. The contour of the horse's robust torso is accentuated by thick ink lines, while the flying-white brushstrokes capture its galloping speed. Like his other animal paintings, the horse painting seeks to visualize the essence of its subject using simple forms and a minimal colour palette.

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. The horse has a been a favorite subject of artists for centuries. Man's first attempt to portray the horse in art was probably in prehistoric times when they were drawn on cave walls. As world cultures developed, horses were depicted in pottery, sculpture, painting, mosaics and other art forms. An inspiring symbol of strength, freedom, power and beauty, the horse was vital in agrarian economies before the Industrial Revolution. Farmers used them to clear land and plow fields. Cowboys and shepherds used them to herd cattle and sheep, while city folk depended on them for delivering goods. Artists also portrayed horses in scenes of leisure like horse racing, polo or simply romping in a scenic pasture. Image Diameter: 13 in. Overall Size: 20.75 x 20.75 in. Unframed. (B08376)

Pausing now and again, it dips its head into the water to find succulent aquatic plants. Arching its head skyward, the mature swan spreads powerful wings and leaps into the air, flying faster than any other waterbird. But the beautiful swan was not always so. As a "cygnet," the youthful swan was clumsy and awkward, deserving the epithet "Ugly Duckling." For a bird so striking as an adult, the eggs are surprisingly nondescript as well, generally half a dozen or so pale, unmarked orbs in a nest constructed of rotting vegetation. But the eggs' plainness bellies the end result of two years of growth. Image Diameter: 13 in. Overall Size: 20.75 x 20.75 in. Unframed. (B08382)

Yellow Cattle are found almost everywhere in China. In fact, they are raised in every province, with their greatest numbers in Inner Mongolia and the northeast. But wherever they live, they have adapted to survive in the unique climate and terrain of that region. Yellow Cattle of Mongolia's grassland graze year round in severe weather and under unfavorable feedings conditions. They consume their body reserves in winter, which leaves them weak and poor. But, they fatten quickly once the new grass of Spring arrives. Although these Cattle are raised as a triple-purpose breed for meat, milk and work, their milk producing abilities are limited due to their small size. Cattle of the agricultural area in the lower basin of the Yellow River are entirely different from those of the pastoral area. Since agriculture is well developed in the basin, ranchers use many different agricultural by-products to the feed the Cattle. These Cattle are well-managed and all have housing. They are the main draft power for farming and are both beasts of burden and source of meat for the local people. Because they do not face the hardships endured by the Mongolian Cattle, they grow to a large size and are very muscular from working on the farm. In tropical and subtropical areas the Cattle graze year round and must withstand harsh feeding conditions. Thus, they have a small body size and slender hooves. They are well adapted to mountain grazing. Image Diameter: 13 in. Overall Size: 20.75 x 20.75 in. Unframed. (B08383)

Two thousand years ago in ancient Mesopotamia, Babylonians and Assyrians celebrated their new year -- Akitu -- during new moons nearest the spring and autumn equinoxes. The ancient Greeks observed the new year with the winter solstice in December, the Romans on March 1. In 154 B.C., Roman festivities were moved to January 1, a date confirmed more than a century later with the adoption of the Julian calendar -- named for Julius Caesar. Judaic new year customs have altered little over the centuries. Since ancient times, the first day of the month of Tishri -- around our September 5 -- has marked the beginning of the Jewish new year and the religious holiday, Rosh Hashana. In parts of India, religious pilgrimages and worship of the Ganges River are typical new year activities. Japan celebrates this holiday on January 1-3 with household decorations of sacred rope to ward off evil spirits, and special foods to ensure prosperity and good health. In China, people welcome the new year by exorcising demons from their homes and offering appeasing gifts to both the spirits of ancestors and the gods of home and fortune. The Chinese new year festivities, commencing in late January or early February, last an entire month. The Chinese lunar calendar is aligned in repeating 12-year cycles represented by 12 animals -- the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. 1993 marked yet another Year of the Rooster.

          Han Meilin (Chinese, B. 1936) "Doves" original ink on paper painting. Signed lower right. Provenance: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting was published on the Fleetwood First Day Cover for the U.S. 29c Love stamp issued February 14, 1994. Doves inhabit deserts, farmland and open woodlands, and are often seen in flocks. This bird feeds on wild seeds, shrubs, acorns, nuts, cactus fruits and occasionally insects. The Dove sports grayish-brown plumage with large white patches on its wings. A long, fan-shaped tail is a distinct identifying mark, making this species easy to spot in the field. Because the Dove inhabits arid regions, it sometimes flies for miles to find water, usually arriving at the watering hole in the early morning or late evening. These scarce sources of water attract not only songbirds and doves, but predators as well, so Doves seldom fly directly to the water's edge, but land first in nearby trees or shrubs. After surveying the scene, it warily approaches the water and may swallow one or two long drafts before taking flight again. Image Diameter: 13 in. Overall Size: 20.75 x 20.75 in. Unframed. (B08384)
