GBP 10,000.00
Dai Qihe was born in 1955 in Heilongjiang province in China. His work is that of the new literati school of painting (xin wenren hua) and this is a marvellous such example. It depicts twelve imaginary landscape scenes of hills and streams painted throughout the year, most with a solitary figure, hut or small boat. The style very much emulates traditional painting albums and, indeed, the colophons on a number of the paintings include the characters 'fanggu' - emulating the old'.
