About This Book

Sanyu (b Shun-Ching, Sichuan Province, China, 1900; d Paris, 1966) began his studies in Shanghai and also spent two years in Japan. In 1921, he received a grant from the Chinese Government to travel to Paris where he became a student at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Sanyu began to exhibit his work at the Paris salons and garnered a modest popularity in Europe as well as in New York. Integrating traditional Chinese aesthetics with Western modernist tenets, Sanyu has created a unique painterly language that is all his own. Dedicated to discovering as much as possible about Sanyu, the author has spent over a decade interviewing Sanyu's friends and gathering records pertaining to Sanyu's life. In addition to listing all of Sanyu's known oil paintings, this catalogue raisonne attempts to reconstruct Sanyu's life in the form of an extended chronology.
