Huang Zhongfang (Harold Wong) (b. 1943)
Born in 1943 in Shanghai, Harold was brought up surrounded by the physical accouterments and in an environment steeped in Chinese culture provided by his wealthy father, a noted collector, and his mother, an amateur Peking opera singer and painter in her own right. The family moved to Hong Kong in 1949 where Harold began serious training in Chinese painting. The talented youth was given his own one-man show by the time he was nineteen, in 1962, and that same year embarked on an extended stay in Europe, returning home to establish a gallery dealing in Chinese painting. He continued to exercise his great knowledge and connoisseurship gained through the family collection and associations and his own intense studies. After decades of success in the business world, by 1990 he had turned his full attention back to his own painting.
