Hong Ling (Chinese, B. 1955), Spring, signed in Chinese, 2008, signed and dated in Chinese; inscribed '80x90cm'(on the reverse), oil on canvas, 90 x 80 cm.
Born in Beijing in 1955, the artist Hong Ling studied oil painting in the years after the Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966–76). In the mountains of rural China, however, his brush found a new path. Drawing together the imported medium of oil on canvas with the landscapes and philosophies of China’s artistic heritage, Hong Ling has made a contribution to the world of Chinese landscape painting unparalleled in its vibrancy.
