Art Nouveau 20" x 20" Red Earth
Large Oil Collection
Page 1 of 2

Provenance: We were fortunate to meet an artist named CHEN Ta-fu during a trip to Yunnan in the autumn of 2000. Mr. CHEN is a painter and a graduate of the Kunming Academy of Art. He also manages a small enterprise that trains young artists and produces Yunnan minority handicrafts. His employees include five young artists. Among other products, these young artists paint these 20"x20" Red Earth oil paintings using techniques devised by Mr. CHEN. One innovation is the paints used. These are extremely bright colors. The paintings appear similar to acrylic, but the paint is oil-based and water-resistant. These paintings will not smudge or crack, like acrylic. They can even be wiped with a damp cloth. The second innovation is the painting surface. These oils are painted on no. 120 aluminum oxide emery paper, producing a durable and unique texture. The paintings themselves are versions of well-known and expensive works by some of China's most famous Red Earth artists. The paintings are occasionally offered on eBay auctions. If marked "on order" customers may still order, but may take approximately 4 weeks for delivery.
