From the Tang and the Qing Dynasty, a number of prominent monk painters emerged from Buddhist temples in the Lingnan region. They included both Buddhist disciples practicing the art of painting and established painters in exile, with the former found in all dynasties and the latter emerging at the turn of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. As a special group of painters in the Lingnan region, they had both commonalities and differences. They were both painters and monks; however, due to their different backgrounds and reasons for converting to Buddhism, they had different understandings of Buddhism, calligraphy, painting and poetry. Their surviving works also demonstrate different vistas.

The exhibition features a number of works by the Lingnan monk painters which are in collection at the Guangzhou Museum of Art. The show is intended to stimulate artistic and academic interest in this special group of painters from a unique period of time. The exhibits are set to give viewers a different visual experience.

Date: April 28, 2013 – December 10, 2013

Venue: Gao Jianfu Gallery, 2nd Floor, Guangzhou Museum of Art
