Lalan (Xie Jing-lan, 1921-1995)
Born in Guizhou, China. Lalan was a self-taught lyrical abstraction artist who studied music in China and France. She relocated to France in 1948 and started painting in 1957. She received Order des Arts et des Lettres from the Ministry of Culture in 1975. In the 70s, Lalan created a cross-disciplinary performance, "Spectacle", that integrated painting, music, and dance.
Myonghi Kang (b.1947)
Born in Daegu, South Korea. Myonghi immigrated to France in 1972. She currently lives and works between South Korea and France. Myonghi studied Fine Arts at the College of Fine Arts, Seoul National University. Her work was shown at Centre Pompidou in 1986, and her first solo show was exhibited at Galerie de France in 1993. She travels around to sketch and recreates landscape painting that is beyond representation and abstraction.
Gerhard Richter (b.1932)
Born in Dresden, Germany. His work has been shown and collected by museums throughout the world. He explores ideas based on found images and photographs, and also created abstract oeuvres, drawings, and glasswork. Richter is one of the most important artists working today.
