Lalan

Standing between two great cultures of Chinese and France, Lalan created splendid paintings that blended the Western abstraction and Chinese landscape while expressing the spirit of a modern woman.

Born in 1924, Lalan was brought up in a scholarly family, where her gift in music was cultivated from a young age. Lalan moved to Paris in 1948 where she started composing music and later study modern dance in Conservatoire nationale supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris (CNSMDP or Conservatoire de Paris). Driven by passion for visual art, she took up painting after divorcing Zao Wou-ki in 1957 and had never ceased painting till an accident took her life in 1995. Lalan started out creating abstract paintings with calligraphic signs under Zao's inspiration. However, she quickly developed a distinct style driven by her strong urge of self-expression. Lalan used saturated colors to express her strong feelings. For instance, she would spray out blue or brown color on the canvas and then painted over with heavy brushworks of black and white. Spirit of Chinese traditional landscapes was brought into Lalan’s painting during 1970’s and the artist’s accomplishments of music and modern dance also add graceful qualities of poetry and rhythm in her works.
