GBP 125,000

Prof Dr Maung Maung Nyo- “I was struck by her beauty when I first saw her painting in Glasgow and then in London in the 1960s. Then Daw Mi Mi Khaing told me about her and I saw her adult photos after her marriage with a family. She was a remarkable woman.”

a Burmese student learning Southeast Asian arts in states-” I’ve seen her in person when I visited Uncle Jerry Khun Mong’s house on Ahlone Road in the late 80’s.”

a Mangrai – “Daw Than E always told the story to us that the body figure was her’s (Daw Than E’s) because Sao Ohn Nyunt would not sit for the long sessions. On the other hand I assume that Daw Than E never stopped talking so that Kelly could get a good head portrait.”
