The Painter From Shanghai

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Pan Yuliang<br />1885-1977<br />
  3. 3. Self-portrait painting done in 1940. On the canvas the painter is dressed in an embroidered black Chinese dress, sitting in a western-style leather chair with shiny copper nails. On the table by her side, colourful western flowers were displayed in a distinctive Chinese vase. The elements of the east and west form an interesting comparison in the picture.<br />Click….<br />
