Catalogue Note

Chu Teh-Chun was a French-Chinese artist whose work was at the forefront of the integration of traditional Chinese painting styles with Western abstraction in the 20th century. Along with his close friends and classmates Wu Guanzhong and Zao Wou-Ki – who were nicknamed the "Three Musketeers" of Chinese modernist art – Chu was elected as member of the Académie des Beaux Arts in France. His work, along with that of Wu and Zao, indelibly influenced the artists of subsequent generations.
