New Distribution Title: Sanyu: Catalogue Raisonné Oil Paintings: Volume Two

Sanyu: Catalogue Raisonné Oil Paintings: Volume Two by Rita Wong.  Sanyu (1901-1966) was a Chinese artist from Sichuan province who lived and died in Paris. Integrating traditional Chinese aesthetics with Western modernist tenets, Sanyu has created a unique painterly language that is all his own. 

Dedicated to discovering as much as possible about Sanyu, the author has interviewed Sanyu's friends and gathered records pertaining to Sanyu's life. 

This is the second volume of her catalogue, which in addition to listing Sanyu's works, attempts to construct Sanyu's life in the form of an extended chronology.
