Banyan tree



The tree is a recurring subject matter in Lim’s oeuvre. His encounters with large trees took place mainly during his painting expeditions overseas. Rendered expressively through a variety of bold and vigorous brushstrokes, the work demonstrates Lim’s versatility in both western oil and Chinese ink media. This work with ink and colour pigments on paper is part of Singapore Art Museum Collection. Physical dimensions of original: 800 x 1520 mm.
