Item Overview

Description

Signed Chen Chi (American/Chinese, 1912 - 2005). Signed Color Lithograph
Chen Chi (American/Chinese,1912 -2005). A signed lithograph on deckle edged paper, depicting an overhead view of blossoming branches over a river with boat. Signed lower left under the mat.

Chi first began exhibiting his work in annual art exhibitions in shanghai in 1940. In 1947, he relocated to the united states through a cultural exchange program to paint and exhibit his work. His first one-man show in the united states was at the village art center in new york city in 1947. Chi lived and worked at the national arts club in new york for 40 years, and in 1966 received the national arts club gold medal for lifetime achievement. In 1954, he was elected into the national academy of design as an associate academician, and became a full academician in 1964.

His work has been shown extensively throughout the united states including the portland museum of art in maine; the museum of fine arts, houston (1948); the miami beach art center (1952); the la jolla art center; the witte museum (1953); the charles and emma frye art museum in seattle (1955); the museum of outdoor arts, where his work is part of their collection as well as their sister museum, the madden museum, where founders of both museums, John and Marjorie Madden were major collectors of his work. He was the first living Chinese artist to be honored with a one-man retrospective of his oeuvre at versailles, in conjunction with the first world cultural summit in June 2000.

The Chen Chi Art Museum opened in shanghai in 1999 on the campus of shanghai jiao tong university, to display his work and promote an international exchange of art and education. The museum was dedicated by the communist party's general secretary , Jiang Zemin, an avid collector of Chi's paintings, who wrote the dedicatory inscription "Chen Chi Art Museum" as an act of personal respect and tribute to the artist. A smaller Chen Chi Museum was also opened in his birthplace of wuxi. Later that year, Chi was invited to create a special work to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the people's republic of china.
