Lot 402: Militant of Northern China (1891-?). Vintage matte-finish 7 x 10 photo, boldly signed in black ink in Chinese. This exceptional image, taken by Yung Fang photographers of Peking, exhibits their official blind-stamp in the bottom right corner. In very good condition, with moderate surface creases and wear, spot of discoloration to background, and slight silvering to darker areas of photo; the overall presentability of the image at arms length remains exceptional. After the collapse of the Wang Jingwei regime, Rong was arrested by Chiang Kai-Shek and sentenced to death on military tribunal: his ultimate fate remains unknown.
