17th National Printmaking Exhibition
The Broken Glass No.1copyright Wang Yuhui
In October 2006, we at artelino received
our first consignment of prints by Mr. Wang Yuhui.
They were all
and mostly large in size.
The artist uses oil-based inks. The paper is a pliable
Chinese paper of middle thickness. The editions are very small, from
10 to 17 copies -
so far not untypical for Chinese printmakers, who do not
yet have a commercial market for art prints in China. It has
not yet developed. The small edition sizes makes art prints by
Wang Yuhui very interesting for collectors of
contemporary Chinese art.
Among the consigned prints were two from a series called
"Broken Glass". The woodblock print "The Broken Glass No.1"
was selected for the 17th National Print Exhibition of China and
was published in the official catalog on page 203.
