Lot Details

"Header No. 46" is an excellent example of the ink and watercolor portraits of young children for which Chinese Contemporary artist Zeng Jianyong is known. This work belongs to Zeng's iconic "Header Series," depictions of young boys and girls that combine realism with exaggerated features. The term "header" refers to the title awarded to those students in China at the top of their school class, identified by the black scarf they wear tied around their necks.

Although Zeng uses techniques and materials associated with traditional Chinese painting, his style and subject choices address Contemporary issues in China today. Zeng Jianyong was born in China in 1971 and graduated from both the Chinese Painting at Huaqiao University, as well as from the Printmaking Department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts. His first group exhibition was in 1994 at China Art Student Annual Art Awards in Shenyang, China, and since then Jianyong has participated in Museum and Gallery exhibitions throughout the world. The artist presently lives and works in Beijing and Shenzhen.
