Lee Man Fong (1988-1913) – ‘Resting horses’

By 16 februari 2018augustus 20th, 2019No Comments
Our next Indonesian auction contains (again) a few masterpieces by Lee Man Fong.

The Chinese – Indonesian artist lived in the Netherlands from 1946 till 1952.

During his stay he also made paintings with Dutch subjects. This painting is one of the examples where he blends East en West very well.


Exhibited: Lee Man-Fung, exhibition rooms Kunst van onze Tijd, Mauritsplein, The Hague, May 1950, probably as ‘Rustende paarden’ (Resting horses). See exhibition poster on the back.
Ly Sengko and Liu Kang; Lee Man Fong, Hiap Seng Press Co, booklet with an overview of Man Fongs work, probably early 1970s. Illustrated as ‘Winter Journey’.
Corn. Basoski, ‘Lee Man – Fung, de verbeelder van het ongekunstelde’, De Nieuwe Haagsche Courant, May 1950. Illustrated as ‘Paarden-wagen’ (‘Horse cart’).
