Chee Chin S. Cheung Lee (1896 - 1966)
Oil on canvas
22" x 27"
Signed and dated lower left 1932
The artist was one of the earliest Chinese students to enroll in a western art school. The view is of St. Mary's Park in San Francisco's Chinatown, showing the still predominant Chinese American bachelor society. He had a long career and was widely exhibited. The Autry National Center in Los Angeles recently purchased a painting by the artist from my collection.
