Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter, lithographer.  Born in Hoy Ping, China on May 4, 1896, Lee began his art studies in China.  At age 18 he immigrated to San Francisco where he spent two years studying English at the Congregational School.

Having chosen art as a career, he studied for five years at the CSFA under Gottardo Piazzoni and Spencer Macky.  He spent 1925 in China with his family, married, and then returned to San Francisco.  During the 1930s he exhibited regularly and was employed by the Federal Art Project.

His oeuvre includes cityscapes of San Francisco, landscapes, and portraits in oil and watercolor. His painting style submitted to occidental influence and shows little trace of his oriental background.

Lee lived in San Francisco until his demise on Jan. 31, 1966.
