This famous Chinese contemporary painter refused to sell his paintings and only gave them as gifts; he was born in 1929 in Hubei and is considered a national grade one artist, a member of the Chinese Artist Association, a committee member of the Shaanxi Artist Association, honorary professor of Hong Kong Art Institute and the President of Shaanxi Qiaolian Chinese Calligraphy and Painting Arts Research Institute. He is famous in painting landscapes and flowers, in particular the Chinese Rose. He was listed in the 1977 Biographies of the Worlds most Famous People. Because he refused to sell his paintings onto the secondary market American high end auction houses and appraisers have blacklisted this artist. The size of this painting is four feet by two feet on special order tissue thin paper. The artists name is not important it is the Chinese culture of the gift that counts.
