Yang San Lang was an extremely important Taiwanese artist. He studied abroad in both Japan and France. At the Kansai Art Academy, he was immersed in European theories of painting. Even though foreign theoretical frameworks had some influence on his development as a painter, Yang San Lang saw nature as his true teacher and followed a creative course of his own. His skill as an artist underlie in his sharp sense of color and the powerful brushstrokes with which he depicted the landscapes he saw. He inject his own emotions into his subject and let his brush flow freely. In Warm Spring (Lot 3335), Yang's use of colors, with contrasting and varying colors emphasize details of the scenery such as the red and green trees and the misty snow-shite mountains attract the viewer's gaze to the center composition and background as well as. The lush forest path is lined with a thousand different harbingers of spring; in the left the trees with few bits of indigo Yang in the center adds visual warmth, and in the right there are strokes of ice-blue. These visual contrasts combine in to a composition that seems effortless.

Yang Sanlang left his hometown early on to study painting in Japan. He studied at the Kansai Fine Art Academy, and later traveled to France, where he gained a new perspective and new understanding, laying the foundation for his future painting style. Throughout his life, Yang Sanlang was persistent in his commitment to creative art, his contribution to Taiwan\’\’\’\’s art education and the influence he had on the artistic styles in his hometown were remarkable.

Yang Sanlang enjoyed using mountains and nature as the subjects of his works, and was especially known for his depiction of the sea and mountain views of Taiwan. He used mainly thick coats of colours, which highlighted the textural changes in oil paints; his brushstrokes showed a strong and unrestrained vigor; he often mixed colours directly on the painting and created bright, changing tones; shadows and mountains in a distance were usually depicted in blue-violet for added depth. His works showed mostly early impressionism, but also carried elements of the unique scenes and geographical elements seen in Taiwan.

Northeast Coast, Taiwan

Oil on canvas

44 x 52 cm

Signed lower left S. Yang in English

Yang San–lang is a founding member of the Taiyang Artist Association, a group of famous early Taiwanese artists who made direct and lasting contributions to the development of the arts in Taiwan. He left home in his youth, travelling to Japan, where he entered the Kansai Art Institute, and then on to Europe for further studies, eventually entering the Autumn Salon in France. When Kuomintang Party Chairman Lien Chan travelled to Mainland China for the historic ice–breaking visit, he presented Chinese President Hu Jintao with Yang's painting of the Yeliu Rock Formations. We can see his important position in art history.
Yang excels at depicting seascapes, especially those that combine the sea with the sunrise, conveying surging momentum and a positive outlook. In this work, "Northeast Coast, Taiwan", the entire sky fades from a bright blue to a faint yellow, with peaceful, breathtaking imagery. The waves in the center of the painting are rendered in deep blue with white foam, expressing movement and rhythm in passion and tension and incorporating the mysterious forces of change in nature. The artist has applied several important components in the artwork, using the coarse depiction of the rocks, the colorful sky and sea, and high–contrast techniques to fully convey the natural scenery, while the intermingling of the waves and the rocks form a golden coastline across the artwork.
Throughout his life, Yang San–lang has pursued the impressionist approach, focusing on painting from life outdoors, emphasizing sunlight and observing the changes of light and shadow over time. He expresses the waves of the sea and the clouds in the sky through a sense of quantity created by the texture of brushstrokes. He is held in high regard as a forefather of Taiwanese art, and was awarded the Cultural Medal, the highest mark of artistic achievement. Among the great masters of the Chinese–speaking world, none can compare in terms of the vitality of the moments he captures, the layering of his spaces, and the profound spirit he expresses in his work.
