In the 30s, Xu Beihong came to Singapore and Malaya frequently to raise fund for the war.
He will paint a small piece like this plum blossom to any donor who donated $5 and a bigger one depicting a horse for $50. Xu held many exhibitions and sale proceeds were donated to victims of the war.
A friend inherited a horse painting whch was recently sold at auction for more than HK$12million.
One very interesting fact is, there are more paintings of his in Singapore and Malaysia than any other countries.
This painting is the National flower of modern China when KMT was in power.
