|LEE MAN FONG (1913-1988) ‘After the rain’, signed u.l., board, 90 x 40 cm.|
‘‘How much Lee Man Fong is still attached to ancient Chinese traditions, despite modern influences, appears from his ‘After the rain’.
This is an exceptionally subdued and harmoniously composed painting, which we could call ‘a symphonic poem in brown and grey’ and in which the resonance of the rustling rain still seems to be recognized.” (H. de Boer, June 1949).
