SAN YU常玉
SICHUAN, CHINA1901-1966
San Yu was born into a wealthy family in Sichuan, China.  He went studying in a private fine art school in Shanghai when he was 17 and was living and traveling in Japan the next year.  At the age of 20, San Yu embarked on a ferry heading France when the government was promoting work-and-study policy and since then, he settled down in Paris.  San Yu’s works is a mélange of the generality of Chinese ink-on-paper and the expression of western contemporary painting, emitting strong poetic atmosphere.  His paintings are always elegantly tranquil but generous, featuring minimalism in graphic lines and the use of color; while painting still-life, the singled lines draw out the quietness and grace of the flower, beautifully with solitude.
