Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Mong Lee (1923-1960)

Mong Q. Lee a Chinese-born American artist of national reputation, died in his sleep in his home.

A native of Canton, China, Lee had won a national reputation in recent years for shimmering, semi-abstract water colors filled with color and haunting, ethereal mood.

He showed at the Sho Studio Galleries in Boston and regularly represented in the Boston Arts Festival.

He also had given one-man shows in New York and exhibited with the Boston Society of Water Color Painters and was represented in the collection of the Worcester Art Museum.

Recently he was chosen to present at the Butler Institute of American Art Midyear Show.

Lee came to this country with his parents at the age of 14 and grew up in in Boston's Chinatown.  In World War II he served in the Army Air Force in the Orient, where he met his wife Elsie.

After the war, Lee enrolled in the New England School of Art and later at the Butera School of Fine Arts.

Lee first came into prominence when the late Francis Henry Taylor, head of the Worcester Art Museum and former head of the Metropolitan Museum of Art spotted one of his canvases in a Boston Arts Festival and promptly acquired it for the Worcester Museum's permanent collection.
