Zoa Wou-Ki


A master of postwar art and the highest-selling Chinese painter of his generation, Zao Wou-ki (1920-2013) applied Modernist art-making techniques to traditional Chinese literati painting. Zao moved to Paris in 1948, rejected his Chinese heritage. By 1954, Zao had developed a unique style that was marked by contrasting colors and lyrical abstraction and that merged Chinese art, as viewed through the lens of European abstraction, with traditional Chinese landscapes.
