Lot description
"Dance" (2010) by Chinese Contemporary artist Jin Yu (China, B. 1963) is a unabashedly celebratory and dynamic oil painting of two beautiful young Chinese women captured in a moment of unabashed revelry and dancing. Despite their old-world dress, these two women posses a futuristic feel, pressed as they are against an invisible plane which restrains their capacity to move freely and encapsulates the details of their dress and physique in a unique manner. This painting belongs to Jin's famed Series of young Chinese women in mid-movement, wearing traditional dresses, painted in his preferred palette of quiet grays and whites balanced by bright red. This stunning painting measures 74.80 x 63 inches (190 x 160 cm), is unframed and in excellent condition.

Jin Yu was born in Beijing, China and graduated from the Central University for Nationalities in 1988 and 1997. Jin is a member of the Beijing Artists Association of China, and has shown in multiple exhibitions throughout Beijing, Japan, and Korea, including the Seoul International Contemporary Art Festival in Korea. Jin participated in "The 2009 Art Fair London" U.K., "Art Cologne" Germany in 2008, and "The Tenth Beijing International Art Exposition" in Beijing. The artist currently lives and works in Beijing China.
