Sun Museum is pleased to present the exhibition “Dreams of Chinese Painters: Yitao Collection”, from 12 April 2019 to 13 July 2019. The exhibition showcases some 50 pieces of paintings selected from the Yitao Collection.
They are from the “Four Monks” of the early Qing Dynasty such as Bada Shanren and Shitao, advocates of the reformation of Chinese painting in the early 20th century such as Gao Jianfu and Xu Beihong, and celebrated masters who made remarkable breakthroughs within tradition such as Qi Baishi and Zhang Daqian. Altogether, 22 artists are featured in this exhibition.
The paintings on display range from the early Qing Dynasty to modern times, all selected from Dr Simon Suen’s Yitao Collection. They illustrate how Chinese artists portray an ideal world that is more enchanting and delightful than reality through weaving techniques, themes and embodied meanings together to form beautiful painted dreams.
