Lot description
One of the most famous, young Chinese Contemporary painters working today, with his paintings typically fetching over six figures at international auction, Li Songsong is known for redefining Chinese figurative painting. Working in a Western style and with narratives filled with suspense and ambiguity, underscored by unclear titles, paintings such as "Game" (1996) show the artist at his very best, with his iconic use of vibrant color, definite brushstroke, and ambiguous narrative. Game" measures 74.50 x 63 inches (189.2 x 160 cm) and is unframed in excellent condition. This work can be ship professionally rolled off of stretchers as winning bidder desires. This painting sold in 2007, Christie's London, [Lot 00451] Post-War and Contemporary Art for US$118,203 Premium.
