© Pan Xi auto-portrait  

Belle de Hangzhou . Femme saule au maquillage éclatant. Troublante féminité.


Ovale du visage aux yeux litchis. Bouche cerise, à croquer. Cheveux de nuages


mêlés aux brocarts, nuages, pivoines, chimères ... Jeunesse élégante, fragile,


précieuse comme la soie ...


calme et volupté dans la peinture de Pan Xi.
