I have two watercolor lithos signed by a Peter Wong. I too am trying to find out information on this rtist. I have an old Biography that was sent to me from Art Image Inc., Los Angeles, CA I have tried the phone number but it is not working. It says he holds a degree in Fine Art from Californai State University at Long Beach. His orginals are in several important private and corporate collections. If you want to know more about what the bio says I would be glad to share it. If you know anything I would appreciate knowing. Thank you DEb

Hi Deb, I have recently acquired a large painting by Peter Wong ( app. 3' by 2 1/2') It depicts Chinese junks in the forground and fishing village huts in the background. I am trying to find out as much as I can about this artist. You mentioned that you would be glad to share information you have in an old Biography. I would appreciate so much if I too can have this information and if I come across anything else I will contact you. Thanks and sincerely, Adrienne

My wife and I also have an original P. Wong, 20x24 that we aquired at an auction in Upstate NY back in 1975(give or take a year). It depicts one large and two smaller Chinese junks at sunset. We too are unable to locate any info on the artist and would appreciate any info anyone else has.

From what we have read here, it does seem correct since the gentleman we bid against had aquired several of his painting and later we had heard he was the CEO of United Parcel Service. So it seems the info is on track.

We would appreciate any info any has on it's value as well as the artist himself. Thanks. Sincerely, Richard & Barbara

Peter Wong Photography @

For 20 years Peter Wong has photographed people, places, and products for advertising agencies, design firms, and corporations in all parts of the United States. Not long ago, he caught that disease that many people never recover from: golf. It quickly became his second passion. For the last five years, his interests in golf and photography have dovetailed and Peter Wong has become one of the premier golf course photographers in the world

I have recently purchased two southwestern paintings mounted side by side by Peter Wong. I see his work in photography but I cannot find his style of painting to identify the piece and an approximate price range. Any suggestions for further research?

Hello Joann, I, too, like many, have a P. Wong. I purchased this oil painting (I think) in 1971 or 72 and wondered of it's worth. Can you or anyone please contact me on this matter? I would certainly appreciate any info on him. Thank you in advance.

In the 70's I purchased a large oil painting at a "home art show." It is signed P Wong. It has 3-4 junks in a golden sunset. At the time, the seller told me this is "Peter Wong" (I had no idea who he was). She also told me that Vincent Price had some of his work.

Like many of you, I too have a P. Wong painting that I would like to know more about. I was lucky to find it at an Estate sale 2 years ago but have not found any information regarding the artist. Any information would be appreciated.

-- Terry Schoeffler (, May 12, 2003.

In the mid-seventies,my late sister sold Peter Wong paintings at the ever popular 'painting shows'much like candle shows and lingerie shows of today.I smelled a rat back then as I do now and can only speculate that the P Wong paintings were actually mass produced in a warehouse somewhere in California as depicted on magazine shows such as 20-20 or 60 Minutes many years ago.I sincerly hope I am wrong for all those who think the paintings are worth something.I personally do not.

I have a painting by P. Wong that was purchased in 1979. It has two junks in it and is 12x16. The appraisal I have on it is over 20 years old and I'm looking to find some more info on the artist and also on my painting. Please respond if anyone has info. Thanks!

-- Sara Washington (, November 07, 2003.

i've got a P. Wong also, purchased @ a home art show in 1977. i was told by the "professional" hostess that he had very recently died. seems there are many p. wongs out there and no one knows who he is or was.

To locate Peter C.Wong 20san%francisco%20art this was the best so far I could come up with if someone did better please let me know I have 3 original watercolors

-- Chuck Finto (, March 10, 2004.

I don't think the Peter Wong, photographer, and P. Wong the artist are the same person. I had my two "Wongs" appraised at $550.00 each, about the same size as yours. Each being Chinese Junks in a harbor scene and they failed to sell in my "online" consignment shop after 8 months of marketing. A lot of people emailed me regarding this artist but not much is known. The appraiser didn't have any info either and didn't seem to think it was anyone important.

I have a friend that wants me to research P Wong paintings. He has one that was purchased on January 5th, 1974 from Camrose Art Corp., located in New York. He also has the original receipt from the purchase listing the price at $93.00. He was not the buyer, but received the artwork and the receipt from the original owner. The artwork is 4 junks in a harbor. Somewhat rough in appearance and the styling is exactly like:,junk-paintings-wong,242283.html My friend would like to sell his artwork, but has no clue as to its value. From the small amount of reading I've just done, the value is under $500.00 if even that high. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

-- James Gelhaar (, March 22, 2004.

I guess I'm in the same boat.Junk boats that is purchased in the 70's at a home art show. Although I was told that P.Wong was on deaths door and that is paintings would be worth something after his death I still love this oil hopefully an original. If anyone should learn anything about our lost artist please let me know.

-- linda Buscemi (, May 13, 2004.
