Unidentified Chinese Artist (contemporary)
etching / 6.9 inches by 11.7 inches (image)
A bowl of melons and root vegetables rests on a table top, each surface a pattern of repetitive geometric figures — produce as it might be interpreted through the creative vision of a Tongan tattoo artist. Looking far more Mid-Century Modern, this etching complements other much earlier works in the collection.
Captioned in Chinese, the print was a gift to the City of Agincourt from a Chinese trade delegation traveling through Iowa.
