Lot Details

"A Present for Valentine's Day"(2011) is a tour-de-force, large-scale oil painting by Chinese Contemporary artist Yu Hui (China, b. 1960), where western modernism and eastern tradition are embraced, as this lush dreamscape bears influence of artists such from Marc Chagall to Zhou Chunya. This monumental landscape is painted in Yu's typical super-saturated palette of bright blue, yellow, pink, and white, with ripe trees and flowers in full bloom amidst jade green foliage. Upon closer inspection, a nude man and woman come into view in this utopia, underscoring the romantic nature of the title and this work. This painting measures 59 x 98.40 inches, is unframed and in perfect condition. Can easily be shipped professionally crated and rolled.

Yu is one of the most famous painters in China and throughout Asia, and his landscape painting are perceived as clever metaphors for the human spirit and the yin and yang equilibrium that one must strive for in life and tend to express his own range of emotions felt as he paints. The underlying theme of Yu's oil paintings is that regardless of any problems, rays of hope and happiness will always fall upon a life honorably lived. The artist was formally trained as a painter in China and is represented by top galleries in China, Singapore and in Europe.
