Sanyu’s work uniquely blended the romantic quality of the West and spirit of Chinese literati, evolving into charming art that marks a distinct achievement of Chinese art in the 20th century. Sanyu was born in Szechuan, China in 1901. He had attended the Shanghai Art Academy and went to Japan in 1901. Sanyu arrived in Paris in the following year and soon adapted the life style of the city where he would stay for the rest of his life. By early 30s, Sanyu had made quite a name for himself in France. Fusing the unrestrained style of Chinese ink painting with the clean, spare qualities of the Fauvist school, the artist invested his paintings with characteristically Chinese reflection and emotional subtlety.
