Lot description
Marine (Seascape). 1952.
Lithograph in colors.
Ågerup 74. Signed and numbered. From an edition of 55 copies. On wove paper by BKF Rives (with watermark). 40,5 x 54,7 cm (15,9 x 21,5 in). Sheet: 50,3 x 65,7 cm (19,8 x 25,9 in).
Printed by E. and J. Desjobert, Paris. Published by La Hune, Paris.

Based on Paul Klee's model, Wou-Ki gradually abandonded figuration in the course of the 1950s and turned to a synthesis of Eastern calligraphy and the European Informel. His poetic, abstract pictures evoke association of landscapes in outer space. [JG].
