Jehan Chan was born in 1937 in Melaka. The recently departed was an outstanding watercolourist and was known for it. He reflected the best of his tutelage in the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art (NAFA, Singapore), under the personal supervision of the great Cheong Soo- pieng. In this particular watercolour on paper painting aptly entitled ‘Misty Morning’, it exudes a certain sense of calmness to the viewer. Most likely from the use of blue hues, the tones blend well with one another and is an ideal piece to own by any Malaysian art enthusiast.
