Art Brokerage: Tseng Yu-ho Chinese Artist: b. 1924-2017. Tseng Yu-ho was born in Beijing in 1924 where she trained in classical painting. Also known as Betty Ecke, Tseng Yu-ho practiced primarily as an artist but also worked as an art historian and educator. Tseng worked in a variety of media, including traditional Chinese mount-making, painting, and calligraphy. Her first exhibition was held in 1959 at the Honolulu Museum of Art, where her husband served as its first curator of Asian art. In the 1950s, the artist designed stage sets and costumes for the operas Job and L'Orfeo by Luigi Dallapiccola and Claudio Monteverdi, respectively. She also traveled to Europe, where she met artists such as Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, Georges Braque, and Salvador Dalí. As time progressed, her practice became increasingly abstract but never entirely broke with the tradition of classical Chinese painting. As with many of the trans-national artists of her generation, she was able to readily absorb influence from outside her own culture, whilst maintaining her own unique voice.
