In 1948, he went to live in Paris with his wife Xie Jinglan and in the 1950’s he visited the United States, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Zao Wou-ki's works are orientated to abstraction and stylistically like the Abstract Expressionists whom he met while travelling in New York.

  • 19C Aquatint Engraving of the Quay at Waterford
    Located in Dallas, TX
    Presenting a lovely 19C Aquatint Engraving of the Quay at Waterford in Waterford city in Ireland. This engraving has been hand embellished with aquatint color(s) and is from Ireland circa 1820-40. It features a scene of the Quay or Port of Waterford from circa 1820. We are basing this upon the attire of the figures in the engraving and the tall ships. It features Reginald’s Tower (still located at the Waterford Quay to this day). Georgian Quay buildings, a number of moored tall ships and row boats, barrels, horses and carts, women and British soldiers. The engraving was professionally reframed and matted in Dallas in the 1980’s and the rear of the frame says that it was “Museum Mounted and Matted”. The frame has a lovely Grecian pattern around the front. If you are Irish...
