Chu Teh-Chun was born in 1920 in Jiangsu province, China. Youngest son of a well-to-do family, his father was a collector of traditional Chinese painting. He was admitted in 1935 to the Art Academy of Hangzhou. He was first interested in the traditional style, then he opted for western painting. In 1937, the Chinese-Japanese war provoked the exodus of the universities towards the west of China. . . .

Beyond works currently in stock, it seemed to me useful to combine business with pleasure by letting you discover others works by artists in my gallery. These artworks, now sold or removed from our website, have been in our stock in the past.

These pages will undoubtedly make it possible for some of you to associate an image with its title or the other way round, for others it will be a good time to discover more on such and such artist. For the sake of confidentiality – the pieces being no longer available – we won't display neither their numbering or their price. For whatever reason, make sure to visit this amazing art database with to date 6441 online works just for your pleasure! Michelle Champetier
