Lot Details

"Untitled (Purple Horse)", (c. 1975). Dimensions: 10 x 15.50 inches/(25.40 x 39.40 cm). This stunning, original figurative acrylic, watercolor and ink painting on paper by famous Chinese artist Walasse Ting combines two of his favorite themes - beautiful, sensuous women and animals - in a eloquent and brilliantly colored work, with Ting's deep violet horse here is magnificent. His passion for the natural world is exemplified in this celebratory work, executed in sweeping brush strokes and vibrant colorings.
Custom framed with plexiglass.

Walasse Ting work was influenced by expressionist styles and used a distinct Chinese calligraphy brushstroke in order to create figures within his work. Images of women and horses – such as this beautiful work – as well as cats, birds, insects and flowers are often themes for his art and allude to Ting’s love of sensory pleasure in the natural world. Ting has had more than 70 solo exhibitions in major art galleries and museums around the world. He is perhaps best known for his longtime collaboration with abstract expressionist painter Sam Francis which resulted in the legendary Sixties portfolio One Cent Life, an international collection of lithographs by Pop Artists Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Indiana, Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein and others, as well as works by COBRA artists Asger Jorn, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, and many others.
