Art work Description:
This coastal scene is typical of the Chinese seacoast. Unlike, for example, the east coast of the U.S., which is relatively flat, on many of the coastlines, in China, the mountains come right down to the sea, and the coastal area tends to be rocky, with large outcropping and, usually, a number of small islands, right off the coast: remnants of the original mountains that have become submerged, as the sea level rose over the millennia. This painting was done at Shanwei, which is several hundred miles up the coast from Hong Kong, and near the port city of Santou. To represent the rough and rocky coast, Xuan has used a quite heavy impasto technique, which is actually visible in the photo of the painting, if you take a closer look. Many of Xuan's paintings involve the water, some with people who work on the water or with boats. This scene focuses on the pure beauty of the coastline and the solitude that one can have by walking along it and enjoying it for itself. The price, shown, includes shipping of the canvas, in a tube, dismantled and rolled.
