Jake Lee's works are increasingly sought after by collectors in the wake of his relatively recent passing, some works approaching $20,000 at auctions. This is a clean, unusually large (24" by 36" plus 4" on a side framing) example, painted directly on board in heavy gouache or tempera (thinned oil?) and in excellent condition. See the net for more images of his paintings, which include California landscapes, as well as overseas exotic images executed in the course of his travels. Lee was born in Monterey in 1915, and began there painting scenes of the Chinese community of California. Later he studied with Dong Kingman. According to Hughes, Lee's watercolors "are a blending of occidental and oriental techniques".
