|A mist-shrouded water scene in soft colors centers on a small houseboat being poled up a canal. This watercolor by contemporary Shanghai painter Zhao-Nian Xi, sealed by the artist in the lower right corner, is characteristic of his technique of using large muted or blank spaces to focus attention on one element. In his scenes of villages along a network of canals near Shanghai, he delivers in each a small, intimate look at one aspect of life. This watercolor is matted and is in excellent condition. Dimensions without mat: 21” (53 cm), height 15” (38 cm). Dimensions with mat: width 25 ½” (64 cm), height 19 ½” (50 cm).|
