Acquired by American Legacy Fine Arts directly from the artist.

The artist portrays his wife, Gloria, in an elegant and refined setting. Her sinuous pose and assured profile project a sense of beauty and confidence. The drape of her pink silk robe hearkens back to her Chinese ancestry and its contrasting embroidered border creates a diagonal line that exudes a feeling of strength. Outside is cool and fresh, the beginning of spring; and the Glimpse of Beauty is viewed from either side of the window.

Artist Statement
"A Chinese lady looking out of her window enjoying the magnolia blossom in Spring. Her window is decorated with a piece of Paper Cutting art. Because of its affordability, paper-cutting became one of the most important types of Chinese folk art. the cut-outs are often used to decorate doors and windows."
