Acquired in China by Drs. Roland van den Berg, between 1962 to 1966. Dutch diplomat and sinologist Roland van den Berg, posted in China as Third Secretary in the Office of the Netherlands Charge d’Affaires from 1962 to 1966. H.E. Roland van den Berg returned to China in 1986 and served as Dutch Ambassador to China from 1986 to 1992.
此拍品由Roland van den Berg先生得於中國。荷蘭外交官及漢學家Roland van den Berg先生於1962-66年以荷蘭外交部辦公室第三秘書的身份首次被派往中國，后又於1986年出任荷蘭駐中國大使，任期至1992年。
Pu Xinyu (1896-1963) too was a painter and calligrapher trained in the traditional style. A nobleman, he was a member of the Manchu Aisin Gioro clan, the ruling house of the Qing dynasty, and was the cousin to Puyi, the last Emperor of China. While in Beijing, Pu Xinyu and Zhang Daqian began to collaborate and together became known as the “South Zhang and North Pu,” an epithet that is still used to refer to their collaborative works of the 1930s.
Yu Feian (1888-1959) also was part of the artistic circle into which Zhang Daqian immersed himself in Beijing in the late 1920s and 1930s. Known for his ‘realistic’ painting style, his paintings are based on the meticulous painting style of the Song emperor Huizong’s works reflecting the interest in realism which emerged under the stimulus from Western art. In 1935, Yu Feian and Zhang Daqian held a collaborative exhibition in Beijing.
Huang Binhong (1865-1955) was another fellow artist and writer who studied and emulated the traditional style of painting and later became one of China’s best-known modern painters. In his 1934 treatise ‘Principles of Painting’ (huafa yaozhi), Huang advocated the study of Tang and Song painters and their works to ‘trace the past as to initiate the future’. This commitment to artistic continuity and the reinvigoration of brush-and-ink painting positioned in the elite tradition of literati painting was repudated in a time of profound political change. Huang was a key figure in the artistic circle around Zhang Daqian.
