Sanyu or Chang Yu was a Chinese-French painter. – 14 October 1901 – August 1966)

Since Sanyu was trained in Chinese calligraphy in his youth, it is not surprising that a majority of his nude drawings were done in Chinese ink and brush. The trained calligraphic stroke, with its varying innuendos, afforded Sanyu a unique chance to delineate the human body, not so much in terms of its anatomy but more as a means of expressing the beauty and sensitivity of a flowing line. With only a few strokes, relying on the fluidity and innate qualities of brush and ink, he was able to capture the essence of his subject.
