Chen, Georgette (b. Paris, France, 1907 - Singapore, 1992))
Born in Paris and educated in France, China and America, she settled in Singapore after the turbulence of the Second World War, finding in the island a suitable, relatively secure environment to pursue her interest in art. She rapidly developed a style of painting that documented and captured the spirit of Singapore in the immediate decades after the war. Her paintings are subtle and sensitive, imbued with the understated elegance of traditional Chinese paintings.
