Painting by Wang Geyi

To brighten up the Year of the Tiger, we present this 1956 painting by WANG Geyi from the China Art Museum, Shanghai.

This simple yet interesting painting pictures a Japanese fiber banana with chrysanthemums. The black banana leaves contrast beautifully with the colorful flowers.
