After experiencing the fall of China’s last imperial dynasty, Chao Shao-an sought to revitalize Chinese art and refresh the artistic connections with nature. Looking to the West for inspiration, Chao became a leader in his homeland’s modernist art movement while continuing to honor his ancient Chinese heritage. His style is loose and expressive, and his fluid brushwork, vibrant colors, and inventive compositions are grounded in the symbolism of his culture. This card set features four of Chao’s stunning depictions of birds. Contains five each of the following notecards: Perching, approx. 1930–1992 Birds in Spring, approx. 1980–1998 Bird in Strong Wind, 1984 Sparrow, 1962
