9. Grand show of eight modern Chinese ink art masters
Nanjing Museum (Nov 27-Feb 28, 2020)
The Nanjing Museum in Nanjing, capital of East China's Jiangsu province, kicked off a grand exhibition of modern Chinese ink art in late November. First of its kind in terms of scope, the exhibition presents 158 signature works by eight of the most influential ink painting masters of modern China, including Qi Baishi (1864-1957), Pan Tianshou (1897-1971) and Huang Binhong (1865-1955).
"Their works in museum collections are officially rated as national treasures, and their painting styles and artistic thoughts have had a far-reaching impact on younger generations of Chinese ink painters," said Pang Ou, curator of the exhibition, art historian and art connoisseur with the Nanjing Museum. "Their works on the market at home and abroad are the Holy Grails at major auctions."
