Landscape No. 880126

C. C. Wang

Not on view

C. C. Wang spent a lifetime engaging with the history of Chinese painting. As a young man in Republican-period China, he studied painting and connoisseurship with the leading scholar-painter Wu Hufan, and after moving to the United States he continued to develop as a collector, artist, and mentor to many in the field. This painting, made when Wang was in his eighties, refers to the style of Fan Kuan (active ca. 990–1030), but the bold blocks of color and ink wash also reflect Wang’s concerted engagement with modern art.
