Biography XiangNing He
A fierce patriot throughout her life, He Xiangning painted this work in
late 1937 to raise funds in support of troops in the Sino-Japanese war
of 1937-1945. The poetic quatrain, penned by the artist, praises the
bravery of soldiers fighting the invading Japanese army at the front
lines in the Battle of Shanghai in August, 1937. The seal at the lower
right, reading Hu zhan lao jun wen wu (??????, artifact for the
relief of troops in the Battle of Shanghai), was likely carved by Zhu
Fukan (???, 1902-1989), an important seal-carver and artist also heavily
involved in the war effort.
