At the age of 19, Lin FengMian went to France to learn western painting in 1919. After studying at Ecole d'art de Dijon and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts(ENSBA), he had gradually created his own unique artistic style in combination with both western painting skills and traditional Chinese ink painting concepts. The expression of his western brushstrokes exuded the poetic graces and the emotive mysteries of the East. He is considered the pioneer who broke the boundaries of Chinese and Western art and created a mix of eastern aesthetic and western techniques. Lin FengMian is good at putting rich colors in Chinese ink paintings and using ink and gouache at the same time to present layering of work. This piece is created late in his lifetime. With the most commonly used square layout among his work instead of traditional long scroll or vertical scroll, he drew the outline of the main body with brush and ink simply, and then renders the nature background from deep to light with gouache. The light and tranquil background brought out the vivid image of the fisherwoman.
