Zhonglin Yu

Biography from Zhong Cheng Auction Co., LTD

Yu Zhonglin was born in Shandong in 1925.  Yu was brought up by his uncle, Hsu Zong-hai, an ardent lover of painting and calligraphy, who cultivated Yu’s interests in painting.  He came to Taiwan in 1949 and worked in the Ministry of Defense. 

In his leisure time, Yu sat in classes in the Department of Fine Arts, National Taiwan Normal University.  He also studied with the famous artist Jing Ching-bo and focused on flower and bird painting and its meticulousness of style. 

In 1956 Yu founded the Li Shui Studio with fellow artist Hu Nian-zu and Sun Jia-qing.  For more than thirty years, Yu kept painting and showing his works, winning critical acclaim as well as important awards.
