Sun Museum is pleased to present the exhibition “Chinese Tradition in Western Oil” from 21 February to 2 May 2020.

Oil painting is a traditional medium of Western art. During the reign of Emperor Kangxi, Western missionaries introduced oil painting techniques to the Imperial court. In the early Republican era, quite a number of young Chinese artists travelled abroad to study Western oil painting in countries such as Britain, France and Japan. Under frequent exchange between the East and the West, many Chinese painters have been practicing oil paint even today.
