The beautiful Chinese Annunciation picture looks stunning as a postcard. A great way to send Catholic beauty to other people and show the diverse, universal nature of our Church.

Chinese Catholic artist Lu Hungrian, also known as John Lu Hung-nien (1919-1989), was part of The New Cultural Movement in early 20th Century China, a mixture of East and West. In particular, Hung-nien mixed Chinese techniques with Catholic themes to enrich Chinese culture. Additionally, and more importantly, his aim was to create the experience of the sacred.

This painting is part of the "Angel Series," of which this is our favorite. We love the delicacy of the image. It is a beautiful representation of the Annunciation in a way we are not used to.

This painting, from which we have selected only a portion, was painted in 1948 in Beijing, China, towards the end of the Communist Revolution, which places it outside of copyright law. The original painting is Chinese watercolor on silk, mounted as hanging scroll. 28.5x53 cm.
