Tyrus Wong watercolors
About 4 yrs. ago, I purchased 2 small, framed watercolors @ a flea market. I liked them for the roosters in the scenes. Once home, I studied them & looked up Tyrus Wong. What a surprise to learn about him! Anyway, was wondering the names of these particular watercolors & estimated value of these tiny treasures! One is the rooster on a mailbox, the other has rooster on a haystack w/ a donkey. Both look like winter scenes. They are appr. 5x6" framed. I just love them; they make me smile. Thank you for any info!


little bird
a small framed of a little bird in a nest on branch signed with a tiny red box left corner,what time period are we looking at we have had it 67 yrs it is framed in gold type frame,was his work masted produced that long ago?


Tyrus Wong
I was left a beautiful signed Tyrus Wong by my Aunt. It is framed and appears to be charcoal on paper of two monkeys sitting on a branch, dated '37. I also have a small print of mother & child (possibly gorilla). They are both absolutely beautiful and I would like to know more about them. Mr Wong has created so much amazing and varied art. I am intrigued. Thanks for any feedback. SenaRose

Info about Tyrus Wong works
Tyrus had his work reproduced as both prints and Christmas Cards.
Please find that the overwhelming majority of inquiries here are identifiable as prints. These typically are the traditional Chinese watercolor style - and often times will come framed. There were several different series of these done. Details about the print series can usually be found on a printers description on affixed to the back of the piece.

I have two paintings that appear to be watercolors. The signature of Tyrus Wong is within a red square. One scene is a man sitting on a rock by a stream looking at a waterfall. The second is a figure plowing with a bull. Don't know the name of the painting, can anyone help?

Drawing of PT 109
I understand you worked as an illustrator for Warner Bros. You work on the movie PT 109. I
am the author of the book AMERICAN PT BOATS IN WW II and
currently collecting materials
for the second printing. I wonder if you still anything
on that movie that I can use,
with your permission of course.
It is my hope that the name of a well know Chinese American will appear in my book.
