Why this is a
Masterpiece

The rear view is a complex pictorial proposition; it presents the major components of the figure - i.e. head, torso, upper limbs, buttocks and lower limbs - as clearly articulated entities whose structures, while distinct, are linked to one another by means of intricate transitional passages. In this picture, Eng Teng demonstrates understanding of these aspects, although not consistently or rigourously. The principal profiles of the figure are connected smoothly and give rise to fluid readings spanning its entire length.

History of the Object
Reclining Figure in Bikini is the outcome of the encounter with a life model in the studio at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), Singapore. It can be confidently assigned to the period of his pupilage at NAFA.
