Xin’an Painting School Exhibition
The Xin’an Painting School originated at the turn of the Ming and Qing Dynasties and their activities centered round the Xin’an River. Painters of the school took the landscapes of Mount Huang and Huizhou as the themes. The leading painters, as adherents of the Ming Dynasty, expressed an unbending and refined spirit with simple and desolate brushwork and noble-minded picturesque scene, who boasted national integrity and refused to obey the new rulers. The exhibition selects carefully all typical works of various periods of the Xin’an Painting School collected at the museum, which enables the audience to taste the artistic styles and features of the Xin’an area during the Ming and Qing dynasties and the appeal of the ancient traditional Chinese paintings.
