Lai Fong was a Chinese artist working in the final quarter of the 19th century, Primarily from his studio in the Indian port of Calcutta. He was strongly influenced by an earlier generation of Chinese ship portraitists, including Lee Heng (f. 1850-1870), Hing Qua (fl. 1850-1880), and Lai Sung (fl. 1859-1885). Lai Fong was known especially for portraying the big, iron windjammers which called at Calcutta while voyaging either to or from ports in the Far East.
