Biography from Christie's Hong Kong:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Wuxi, Jiangsu province in 1914, Fang Zhaolin received a modern education under the guidance of her open-minded parents. In 1937 Fang left China for the United Kingdom to study European modern history at the University of Manchester, becoming the first Chinese female student at the institution. Fang's journey as an artist was inspired by many prominent painters of the 20th century. She first received training from Chen Jiucun and Qian Songyan in Shanghai; while in Hong Kong she learned under Lu Xinnong and Zhao Shao'ang who opened her doors to the Lingnan School. She became a student of Zhang Daqian in 1953, and this experience had profound influence on her art. Fang's mature works after the 1960s accentuate her superb skill in using calligraphy brushworks to outline mountains and landscapes. Through the activity scenes she depicted, Fang's works resemble Western genre painting and manifest an underlying humour and often a social ideology that are shared by her audience.
