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”.

    y....el caos cultural del maoísmo también le privó de ver su arte en exhibiciones, y la primera muestra pública de sus obras se organizó a finales de los 70, cuando él tenía ya 59 años.....

  • Magistral, cuantos más trabajos suyos veo más me parece magistral este pintor. Toda la pintura abstracta no es igual, para mí las hay que no comprendo nada y la mayoria no me gustan. Muchas de estas pinturas lo son, si no todas, y me producen un placer inmenso al contemplarlas. Por lo tanto no es la pintura es el pintor. Gracias Miachela, besos Pilar

  • Wu Guanzhong – Detail - Seascape at Beidaihe MET In this work, inspired by Mao Zedong's poem about the summer resort of Beidaihe, Wu translated actual scenery into a composition that verges on abstraction. Except for the boats that dot the horizon and the black silhouettes of protruding rocks, the surface is given over to a mesmerizing depiction of waves. Wu painted out some of his ink lines with opaque white—something a traditional Chinese artist would never do—to prevent linear patterns from predominating over the illusion of light reflected from the water. In contrast to the literati objective of capturing the essence of the natural world through abstract calligraphic brushwork, Wu exploited the tension between abstraction and the vivid evocation of three-dimensional forms to create an intensely personal encounter with nature.

    2. 2. In 1936 Wu Guanzhong enrolled in theHangzhou Academy of Art, where hestudied Western oil painting under LinFengmian (1900–1991). From 1947 to1950 he was in Paris, immersinghimself in the works of Cézanne,Gauguin, and Matisse before returningto China as a lecturer at the CentralAcademy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Wudeveloped a hybrid style that heexpressed in Chinese landscapes ofremarkable beauty. "I felt that I waspursuing something: the peoplesfeelings, the earths rhythms, atraditional style and the formalprinciples of modern Western art," hewrote in 1982.Wus modernism conflicted with theviews of the academys director andwith the Social Realist style of Sovietmodels and he was transferred toanother post. During the CulturalRevolution he was sent into thecountryside for three years and did notpaint. Wu began working in Chineseink on paper only after 1972.Exhibitions in San Francisco in 1989, inLondon in 1992 and in Paris in 1993catapulted Wu Guanzhong onto theinternational art scene. His paintingswere received to rapturous applause. Herewas a Chinese artist displaying amodernity and style that was captivatingboth Chinese and Western audiences alike.His images displayed a beauty andsimplicity that transcended barriers oflanguage, culture and heritage.As Wu Guanzhong,once said, “There isno boundary interms of art; artbelongs to the world,not to a certainnation or country.”
