David Hu Original Sumi Ink Painting Autumn flowers Yellow & Orange Signed Framed

  • 22900
  • Save $ 70

This beautiful sumi ink painting on paper is titled “Autumn” and signed by the artist.  David Hu is a well-known and esteemed sumi-e artist in Canada.

This beautiful Oriental brush painting is a close up of yellow and orange daisy / chrysanthemum - like flowers.  The rice paper on which it was painted looks like it might be a page (or part of a page) from a notebook (notice the left edge).  The painting was mounted on a heavier backing paper; the artist wrote the title and his signature on the backing “board” just below the lower edge of the painting.  A past owner (or perhaps the artist) put it in a simple black plastic frame for protection.  As you can see from the photos (when we took the painting out of the frame), the painting’s backing paper is attached to the back of the mat with a piece of tape.  You can, of course, reframe it with the entire painting showing --- since the current mat and frame keep us from seeing one edge of the painting.

The classic and iconic flowers were captured by the artist with a few brush strokes of black ink --- and then accented with yellow and orange paint.  This timeless original painting of flowers will fit into an art collection with eastern or western unique treasures! 

The full page on which the flowers are painted is about 4 3/8” wide and 4 1/4” high.  The mat “window” is under 6 ½” x under 4 ½”. The black plastic frame is over 11 ¾” x over 9 ¾”. 

In its current mat and frame, this original sumi-e painting is ready to hang on the wall or display on a tabletop stand / easel.  But you might also want to reframe it ---- both to show the entire painting and perhaps to give it a larger and more dramatic presentation.

In our photos there is interference from glare and reflections ---- since the painting is protected under glass.


The following biography of the artist Dao-Yan Hu (David Hu) is from the “Knowledge Center” of the Global Gallery site:


Dao-Yan Hu

Born in China in 1946, David Hu began studying art at an early age. He graduated from the Zheling Art School and Art College of China with a degree in Fine Art Studies.

After working in China for several years, Hu migrated to Canada in 1989 where he continued his Fine Art studies at the Novia Scotia College of Art and Design. After studying and teaching in Nova Scotia for a few years, he moved to Toronto, Canada in 1991 where he has resided since.

Schooled in both eastern and western art, Hu blends the two traditions and has gone on to exhibit his art worldwide. Often painting delicate floral images softly imbued with oriental style, Hu is also interested in creating collages of varied colors, shapes and oriental characters.

A major focus of his work is the design and production of handmade fine art images and greeting cards. These handmade cards are sold in the Guggenheim Museum, the Asia Art Museum of San Francisco, the Seattle Art Museum, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Papyrus USA, and Itoya Japan.

Hu also teaches Chinese painting, wet mounting and paper dyeing at several locations in Toronto, Nova Scotia and China. Additionally he has published works on the basics of wet mounting.

Hu has displayed his artwork in several exhibitions throughout Canada and also in China and Taiwan.
