About

MAGENTA HORSE, TWO GEISHAS is an original hand drawn lithograph on archival Somerset printmaking paper, 100% acid free, by the renowned Chinese born artist Walasse Ting (DING XIONGQUAN, Chinese, 1929-2010). Ting's use of bold colors and expressive calligraphic Chinese brush drawn forms convey vivid life energy. He is well known for his colorful images of women, flowers, fish, parrots and horses and was associated with artists Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, and Pierre Alechinsky, members of the avant-garde group called COBRA. Throughout his artistic life, Ting imbued his passion and spirit into his paintings, poetry and sculpture. MAGENTA HORSE, TWO GEISHAS is a freely expressed Chinese brushwork drawing of a colorful magenta horse with a deep blue mane standing beside two lovely geisha women dressed in blue and green kimonos, one holding a parrot, the other demurely bearing a decorative fan near her face. This splendid scene exemplifies Ting's love of nature and color with its combination of hot pink, magenta, rich blues and shades of green. Print size - 17.75 x 23.25 inches, unframed, excellent condition, pencil signed by Walasse Ting Edition size - 200 Year published - 1981

About the Artist

Walasse Ting

Walasse Ting was a Chinese-American visual artist and poet. His colorful paintings have attracted critical admiration and a popular following. Common subjects include nude women and cats, birds and other animals.

Ting was born in Shanghai in 1929. He left China in 1946 and lived for a while in Hong Kong, then settled in Paris in 1952. There, he associated with artists such as Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, and Pierre Alechinsky, members of the avant-garde group, CoBrA.

In 1957, Ting moved to the United States, and settled in New York, where his work was influenced by Pop art and Abstract Expressionism. He began primarily as an abstract artist, but the bulk of his work since the mid-1970s has been described as popular "figuratism," with broad areas of color painted with a Chinese brush and acrylic paint. He lived in Amsterdam in the 1990s, but regularly moved between there and New York.

Ting is the author of 13 books, including All in My Head (Walasse Ting & Roland Topor, 1974) and One Cent Life (E.W Kornfeld, 1964), a portfolio of 62 original lithographs by 28 artists, including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist, Asger Jorn, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Kiki Kogelnik, Joan Mitchell and Sam Francis.

Ting won the Guggenheim Fellowship Award for drawing in 1970. His works can be found in the permanent collections of many museums worldwide, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the Hong Kong Museum of Art, among others. He was sometimes referred to by his Chinese name "丁雄泉" or its various romanizations : Ding Xiongquan or Ting Hsiung-ch'uan.
