Pioneer of Modern Chinese Painting
Xu Beihong (1895-1953) was among the first Chinese artists to study Western-style painting in Europe, and he is often called the "Father of Modern Chinese Painting." His images, particularly of horses, are familiar throughout China, as are his monumental history paintings Tian Heng and His Five Hundred Warriors and The Foolish Man Who Removed the Mountains. Photographs of Xu Beihong illustrate his life as an artist, educator, and family man.
