Lee Man Fong (1913-1988) 'After the rain', signed u.l., board, 90 x 40 cm. Provenance: private collection, The Netherlands. Exhibited in: a) Exhibition rooms Kunst van onze Tijd, The Hague, 1949, b) Arti et Amicitia, Amsterdam, 1949. There are two titles on the list of 52 paintings for both these exhibitions that could refer to this painting: no. 41 'After the rain' ('Na de regen') and no. 36. 'Winter landscape' ('Winterlandschap'). According to us, the title for this painting is most probably 'After the rain'. Literature: a)Siont Teja, 'Lee Man Fong - Oil Paintings Volume II”, Art Retreat, Singapore, 2005, p. 167 (Exhibition Holland 1949, 3rd painting from the right side), and b)Boer, H. de, ‘Lee Man Fung, een Chinees schilder exposeert in ons land’, in Kunst en kunstleven magazine, June 1949. Mr. de Boer about 'After the rain': 'How much Lee Man-Fung is still attached to ancient Chinese traditions, despite modern influences, appears (amongst others) from his 'After the rain'. This is an exceptionally subdued and harmoniously composed painting, which we could call ‘a symphonic poem in brown and grey’ and in which the resonance of the rustling rain still seems to be recognized. 'PLEASE NOTE: 1) For buyers outside the European Union the normal buyers premium applies (official proof of export needed). Otherwise 21% VAT applies to both hammer price and the buyers premium. 2) We don't accept online live bids during the auction for this lot.
