“How Long Does Love Last?” (2010) is a visually stunning and unabashedly passionate figurative color silk screen-print by famed Chinese Contemporary artist Wu Mingzhong that belongs to his larger body of paintings and prints that all feature figures reinterpreted as hollow glass vessels. This work measures 30.31 x 46.46 inches (77 x 118 cm) is an edition 32 of 60, is unframed in excellent condition. In “How Long Does Love Last” a hollow glass couple is depicted in the midst of a passionate kiss, the figures share the red wine they are both filled with.
