NIGEL WANTED FISH...
...SO NIGEL GOT FISH - IN HIS NEW HOUSE IN FRANCE.
Nigel has just moved into his new house in the medieval village of Nerac in Southwest France.
He wanted a dominant painting for one of the walls.
It had to be an exact copy (or exact as possible) of a Walasse Ting painting of fish. Here it is, freshly painted and just hung on the wall.
For those of you who want some information on Tinge, he was a Chinese-American painter, sculptor, and poet, born in 1929 in Shanghai, China. He lived in Hong Kong for a brief period before moving to Paris and then to New York. In 1970 he won the Guggenheim Fellowship Award for drawing. He died in Amsterdam in 2010 at the age of 80.
So now you know.
