  • Boat Carrying Grass, 1987
    Oil on Canvas
    30" x 40" (76cm x 101 1/2cm)

    About this work

    Lin Hongji has undoubtedly been influenced by the intriguing landscape of his homeland in the semi-tropical area of Guangzhou in Guangdong province and the many inlets and waterways in this coastal area have provided numerous subjects for him to paint. In "Boat Carrying Grass", he has used a style reminiscent of the Barbizon school. The soft impressionistic brush strokes, twilight illumination and peaceful composition suggests that life in this region is far removed from the bustle of China's burgeoning cities.
