Beijing Morning by L. Martel

This is a 12″x 16″ oil on canvas, painted in 1982, of an elderly Chinese gentleman reading a news paper. He has just done his food shopping and is taking some time out to check out the paper.

    • Beijing was in a major development mode when we were there. We did stay in an original Hutong when we first arrived to see what it was like. They (Hutong) were rumoured to be endangered in order to modernize the city. So I would expect many changes have transpired since our visit.
