Lee Man-Fong - Balinese dame in Sarong

Lee Man-Fong - Balinese dame in Sarong
Pressão offset - Impresso na placa - 1955

Lee man Fong was a painter born in Guangzhou, China. His father, a merchant with ten children, brought him to Singapore. When his father died in 1930, Man Fong had to work hard to earn a living for his mother and siblings with his skills in painting advertisements and artwork. But that was not enough for him. In 1932 he moved to Jakarta, Indonesia.

In 1946, President Sukarno heard about him when he had his solo exhibition in Jakarta. Sukarno knew then that Man Fong received a Malino grant from Van Mook, the Dutch Lieutenant-Governor-General. In Europe, many of his exhibitions were successful. He briefly returned to Indonesia and returned to hold exhibitions from The Hague to Paris. He returned to Jakarta in 1952.

This work by a Balinese lady with a bowl in her hand came from the private collection of the former President Sukarno. In 1964 this work was exhibited in an exhibition about Sukarno's art collection. Here is a 5-part series of books from which this print originates.

This print is beautiful suitable for framing.

Of course, this work is safely packed and shipped registered between 2 wooden plates.
