Book Launch: Meet the Master Enameller You Fenghua
Enameled-glass snuff bottles was a unique royal collection which the Chinese emperors gave to their family members, court officials, and close aides as rewards; and sometimes also as diplomatic gifts to foreign governments. This special art form has in time become a popular object for collectors and connoisseurs around the world.
Master Wang Xisan has produced excellent compositions covering a great variety of subjects such as landscapes, portraits of historical and celebrated figures, children at play, ladies, scholars and sages in garden scenes, birds and flowers.
Having been trained by Master Wang for more than thirty years, You Fenghua, a first class master artist in Hebei Province, is now the only successor of this art and a conversant painter on a wide range of subjects. Her strong sense of colour has led her to exploit the dazzling hues of enamel to the fullest degree.
This book features the collection of Zihu Studio, superb works of Qing imperial bottles by Master Wang Xisan and Master You Fenghua’s work.
