from The Annunciation
By John Lu Hung-nien

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.

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
