Thank you
Wu received artistic education in the Hangzhou National Arts Academy under guidance of such famous painters like Pan Tianshou (1897–1971) and innovative and impressionistic artist and educator Lin Fengmian (1900–1991) in the early 20th century. In 1947, Wu went to Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts of France. He also became the only one who decided to go back to an uncertain China to become “a plum blossom in the winter of one’s hometown instead of a rose in an already prosperous garden of others”.

Wu Guanzhong (1919-2010), rankedamong the giants of modern Chinese artand in 1992 became the first livingChinese artist to have an exhibition atthe British Museum in London, in a showcalled Wu Guanzhong: A 20th-CenturyChinese Painter. .His pictures, mainly landscapes, blendWestern oil painting techniques withtraditional Chinese brush strokes andtouches of calligraphy. Wus workcommanded spectacular prices, and in2010 his 1974 oil painting PanoramicView of the Yangtze River sold for $8.4million at auction in Beijing. Under thehammer in 2009 his works fetched nearly$40 million.With his contemporaries Zhao Wuji andZhu Dequn, Wu belonged to ageneration of Chinese painters who wentto France to study painting in the 1940s,before starting to transform Chinese artwith Western techniques. Of the three, Wuwas the only one to return to paint inChina after the Cultural Revolution; theothers remained in France.Wu developed a hybrid style that heexpressed in Chinese landscapes ofremarkable beauty. "I felt that I waspursuing something: the peoples feelings,the earths rhythms, a traditional styleand the formal principles of modernWestern art," he wrote in 1982.Although his works sold for fortunes, Wuinsisted on donating his best pieces tomuseums where the public could see them.In 2008 gave 113 oil and ink paintingsvalued at $53 million to the Singapore ArtMuseum.
