An artistic rendering of the Shanghai Bund
One of the marvels of the Internet is the unlimited supply of new materials on any topic. Shanghai keeps attracting the attention of scholars, journalists, and…artists. Simon Fieldhouse is an Australian artist specializing in drawings of historical monuments and sites, although he produces a wider range of art works.
Among his rich body of works, Simon Fieldhouse produced a complete series of drawings of the historical buildings on the Shanghai Bund, with a skyline of the whole Bund and an accurate numbering of the individual buildings.
The series is available on his web site: http://www.simonfieldhouse.com/shanghai.htm
This is a wonderful resource for art historians and historians alike. It provides elegant sketches of each of the buildings that were once the proud display of the companies that built them. It forms a unique collection of visual materials about the Shanghai Bund.
