Known as a Modernist painter and the creator of a style he called "diamondism", composed of fragmented forms vividly colored, Yun Gee was born in Gee Village, now called Chu Village, near Canton, China in 1906.  At age 15, he arrived in San Francisco in 1921, joining his father, a merchant who traveled there frequently from China.  However, his mother remained behind with his younger brothers and sisters, and Yun Gee never saw her again.  He was able to become an American citiz (showing 500 of 5185 characters).
