Lot description
This poignant portrait of a baby boy dressed in blue sweater vest and white shirt is one of the most sublime and nostlagic one of the images by internationally acclaimed Chinese Contemporary artist Zhang Xiaogang from his "Amnesia and Memory" Series of prints from 2006. The artist is best known for his somber, yet dreamy and poignant, images of families, children that often integrate patches of colors that belie the consistent, simplified features of his source imagery, namely, the conservative black and white vintage "studio portraits" of families popular in China before the days of the Cultural Revolution. This work is printed on 300g Somerset velvet paper, measures 31.30 x 23.30 inches, and is in excellent condition. This is edition 84 of 88.

Zhang Xiaogang was born in 1958 in China and is indisputably one of the most recognizable and significant Contemporary Chinese artist working today, and he has enjoyed this status since the earliest days of the international art market in China, now formally represented by the elite Pace Gallery. A painting by the artist recently set a record for the highest price ever paid at auction for a Contemporary Chinese painting.
