Jake Lee "Tractor in the Barn" Original Watercolor Painting c.1990

1990

$1,450

About

Fine watercolor painting by noted American artist Jake Lee Though untitled, we are calling this "Tractor in the Barn". A nice farm scene with chickens outside a barn. Dimensions 13.5" x 10.5". The distressed frame measures 21" x 17". Signed and dated lower right. Very good condition. Jake Lee was born in Monterey, California on October 23, 1915 of Chinese parents. As a child Lee began painting scenes of the Chinese communities and the fisherman of Monterey. After graduating from San Jose State College in California, he studied at the Otis Art Institute and with Dong Kingman. His watercolors are a blending of occidental and Oriental techniques. Though there is much still to learn about the history of Chinese America, Jake Lee is emerging as the visual chronicler of the Chinese American past. No other artist, of any background, has presented that history as richly and as evocatively as Lee did in his many, striking compositions. Completed over a lifetime of work, Lee's paintings of historical sites, moments, and experiences give us an artistic vision that moves us, excites us, and intrigues us to this day. We see his paintings and we want to know more! By the early 1940s he had settled in Los Angeles, where he gave demonstrations at art clubs and taught at Brandes Art Institute. He died in Los Angeles on September 13, 1991.
