Description
The Pacific Carriage Company was the predominant carriage company operating out of San Francisco during the early 1900s, says artist Mian Situ. Their carriages provided luxury transportation throughout the city. The bowler-topped Irish hack-man has given this Chinese mother, daughter and young ones permission to inspect the carriage while he awaits his wealthy passengers. Mian Situ's lush oil paintings, evocative snapshots of world history, gather more and more acclaim with every passing month. At the 2008 Coeur d'Alene Art Auction this past July, the original painting of Pacific Carriage Co., San Francisco, 1905 sold for an astonishing $225,000, shattering the high end of its expected auction price. There is still time to become an early collector of Mian Situ's art, but it won't be long before his work is as unattainable as that of Howard Terpning himself.

The Artist

Mian Situ

Born in Southern China, Mian Situ received his formal art training in his native homeland of Guangdong, formerly Canton. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the prestigious Guangzhou Institute of Fine Art. After instructing for six years, he earned a Masters in Fine Art.

Immigrating to Canada, then later moving to the United States, Mian's paintings clearly reflect his upbringing in the rural countryside of his native China. His artistic diversification of subject matter, from the people of the small villages and farming communities going about their daily lives to the exquisite portraitures as well as his most recent works inspired by western historical themes and American landscapes, all reflect the sensitive dedication of this Master Artist.

Mian has been recognized with many national art awards. During the 2002 Masters of the American West exhibition and sale at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles California, Mian Situ received the Masters of the American West Museum Purchase Award, the Thomas Moran Memorial Award for Artistic Merit and the Patron's Choice Award. In 2003, Mian was honored with the Thomas Moran Memorial Award, Artist's Choice Award and Patron's Choice Award. Most recently, in 2005, Mian was presented with the Artist's Choice Award for his painting, The Word of God. Mian Situ is represented by Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and Jackson, Wyoming. He lives with his wife, Helen and daughter, Lisa in California.
