In the 1920 and 30s, China was witnessing surging intellectual currents, and many progressive young artists engaged in popular creative painting, capturing the actual situations of the people. They were concerned with public livelihoods and depicted the lives of common people to highlight their plight. These works were charged with emotions, blended Eastern and Western techniques, and incorporated bold innovations, laying a solid foundation for the development of figure paintings in China in later years.

This exhibition features the works by more than ten prominent painters, including Chen Shuren, Huang Shaoqiang, Fang Rending, Ye Qianyu, Xu Beihong, Guan Shanyue, Li Keran, Feng Zikai, Huang Zhou, Liu Lun, Cheng Shifa, Yang Zhiguang, Liu Danzhai, Liu Wenxi, and Liu Jirong. The exhibition showcases the remarkable achievements in Chinese figure paintings in the 20th century.

Date: May 1, 2013 – January 18, 2014

Venue: Li Xiongcai Gallery, 2/F, Guangzhou Museum of Art
