Ho Feng-Shan was a Chinese diplomat who was consul-general in Vienna during WWII. He risked his life and career to save more than 3,000 Jews by issuing them visas, disobeying the instruction of his superiors. At the time it was not necessary to have a visa to enter Shanghai, but the visas allowed the Jews to leave Austria.
Ho is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished.
