Shanghaiese artist PANG c.1950
In 1960 I bought a 36x24 inch oil painting of what I thought was a Chinese girl (she had an uncanny likeness to my new girlfriend and present wife!) though the owner on the shop on Observatory Road near Gun Club Barracks told me the title was 'The Student' and the subject a Russian.
About ten years later an Artist named Pang was interviewed by the China Mail and that is how I discovered the pre 1949 Shanghai connection. If anyone has information on the artist I will post a copy of my paintng for their information.
