Why this is a
Masterpiece

Three Goats, an early work done in the 1950s, marks an earlier phase of Cheong’s artistic practice that was characterised by his experimentation with the oil in impasto effects. The thick and textural effects, coupled with the use of rich mellow earthy colours and highlighted by strategically placed patches of colours, further accentuate the stylisation of the subject matter.

History of the Object
Interestingly, the goat is a common subject in many of Cheong’s works, albeit in the different phases of his artistic experimentation. A quiet man by nature, the artist chose this subtle way to convey his love and care for his family, and in particular, his only daughter who was born in the Year of Goat (one of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs).
