Children by Chinese artist Liu Derun b 1950



Liu Derun (Chinese artist, 1950) Golden


A native of Shandong, Liu Derun, whose paintings of children glorify the strength of the human spirit, was born in 1950. Traditionally when a child was expected in the family, the mother or a close relative would personally design & sew symbolic Tiger Head Hat. They hoped that by wearing the hat, the child would be protected from evil & disease. The hat also symbolizes family continuity & prosperity. It was not until the forming of New China in 1949, that art academies & institutions began offering systematic training for the Western Arts. An important milestone marking the new era was the first Chinese oil painting auction held by Christie's of Hong Kong in 1992, to great critical & financial success.

Swedish artist Carl Larsson (1853-1919) was a painter, illustrator & printmaker. He came from a poor family & studied (1866-76) at the Konstakademi in Stockholm, supporting himself throughout this period. From 1871 to 1878, he contributed illustrations to the comic journal Kaspar and the Ny illustrerad tidning. From 1875, for several decades, he was a prolific book illustrator, his most renowned work in this field being his drawings for 'The Barber-surgeon's tales' (published 1883-4) by Zacharius Topelius. Later Larsson produced most of his own prints.
