Lai Fong, born 1869, was a Chinese artist working in the final quarter of the nineteenth century, primarily from his studio in the Indian port of Calcutta. He was strongly influenced by an earlier generation of Chinese ships' portrait artists, including Lee Heng (flourished 1850-1870), Hing Qua (flourished 1850-1880), and Lai Sung (flourished 1850-1885). Lai Fong was known especially for portraying the big windjammers which called at Calcutta, either voyaging to or from the Far East.
Lai Fong's works are represented in the collections of the Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool, India House in New York, the Mariners Museum of Newport News, Virginia, and the Maritime Museum of Troense, Denmark.
