Lot description
"Jade No. 5" (2009) is an ethereal and stunning oil painting from the famous "Jade" Series of portraits, by internationally renown Contemporary Chinese artist Tung Lo (China b. 1956). This work is painted in a manner that makes this cropped-close up portrait of this beautiful woman feel out of focus, as if she is an apparition from a dream or fantasy slowly fading from view, the fantasy of the painting is underscored by the jade green color that makes this work truly luminous and quietly sensual. One of the finest portraits from the series, "Jade No. 5" measures 39.37 x 39.37 inches (100 x 100 cm) and is in excellent condition.

Tung Lo was born in 1956 in Guangdong, China, and lived internationally in California in the US, as well as Hong Kong and Japan. He attended the Ecole des Beaus-Arts in the US and was inspired to create works that speak to all nationalities. The artist's works explore a combination of the people and places of his travels through contemporary art and Chinese philosophy. Tung is a member of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and received the first prize in contemporary from the Chariol Philippe Foundation, as well as many other awards and recognitions. His works are held in many public and private collections, and have been exhibited at the National Museum of China, Beijing; the Seoul Metropolitan Museum of Arts, Korea; the Musee des Beaux ARts d'Unet, France; Caire Metropolitan Museum of Arts, Egypt, among many more. The artist currently lives and works in Paris.
