Art books on display
    2018-07-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Art books on paintings by Vincent van Gogh, Liu Haisu and Qi Baishi and paintings collected by Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) emperor Qianlong are on display at Bao’an Library.

Van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. His works feature landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art.

Liu (1896-1994) was a prominent Chinese painter and a noted art educator. He excelled in traditional Chinese painting and oil painting. He was one of the pioneers of Chinese modern art.

Qi (1864-1957) was noted for the whimsical, often playful style of his watercolor works. Some of Qi’s major influences include painters Bada Shanren (1626-1705) and Xu Wei (1521-1593). The subjects of his paintings include almost everything, commonly animals, scenery, figures, toys, vegetables, and so on. He theorized that “paintings must be something between likeness and unlikeness, much like today’s vulgarians, but not like to cheat popular people.” In his later years, many of his works depict mice, shrimp or birds. He was also good at seal carving.

The massive collection by Qianlong became an intimate part of the emperor’s life. He regularly added poetic inscriptions to the paintings of the imperial collection, following the example of the emperors or painters of the previous dynasties.
