Lot Details

"A Date With Spring" (2010) is a rare and important color lithograph print, edition 18/99 measures 24.80 x 36.20 inches, (62 x 92 cm) and is in excellent condition.This is a stunning print by famed Chinese Post-Modern artist Wang Yidong (China, b. 1955) that depicts a poignant and specific moment in time shared between the subject and viewer. The unabashedly rich hues of red create visual focus on the central beautiful young woman casually braiding her hair and sitting upon a thick tree branch. She is surrounded by snow and the desolate dead winter landscape, while she glows vibrantly alive and young. The tranquil expression and silent surroundings all heighten the sense of an intimate moment shared, as new life overshadows winter death, foreshadowing the painting's title.
