Lot Details

Little Girl (2008) is an unabashed large-scale portrait by emerging art star Chinese Contemporary artist Wang Zhijie, that belongs to the artist's famed "Little Girl Series" (2008). This painting measures 70.86 x 59.05 inches (180 x 150 cm), and is in excellent condition. This nymph-like, otherworldly beauty has exaggerated facial features such as her large luminous blue eyes, tiny nose, and rose-bud mouth that underscore her naiveté. This patina of innocence balances the seductive pose she strikes, dressed provocatively wearing just a military hat and suspendered pants with legs apart and hands holding the nozzle of a gun.

Wang Zhijie (China, B. 1972) has already received critical acclaim and has exhibited widely in Asia, Europe and the U.S., with group and solo shows in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, New York, Dresden and Seoul amongst many others, with works sought after on both the primary and secondary markets.
