Lot Details

"Woman with Sword Series Three, No. 1", (2006) is a large-scale and an early work by important young Chinese female artist Yu Hang (b. 1981), now represented by top galleries in New York, Beijing and Singapore. This is edition 9 of 10, measures 39.50 x 39.50 in. (100cm x 100 cm) and is in excellent condition. This work is accompanied by an original certificate from the artist's formal gallery, signed by the artist herself. The contrast between the nudity of the subject and the culture- and tradition-filled context creates a subtle erotic atmosphere. A strong tension develops between the focus given by the artist to a beautiful ancient Chinese art and the iconoclastic treatment which features female nudity, traditionally not depicted in a manner such as this. Framed to larger dimensions, listed are approximate.
