Description

The May 4th Movement of 1919, or the New Culture Movement, inspired the Chinese to learn from western art and introduce it to China. Many outstanding painters, led by Xu Beihong, emerged, whose paintings recognized a perfect merging of the merits of both Chinese Art and Western Art styles, absorbing western classicism, romanticism and impressionism. Other great painters of this period include Qi Baishi, Huang Binhong and Zhang Daqian. Oil painting, a western art, was introduced to China in the 17th century and gained popularity in the early 20th century. In the 1980s Chinese oil painting boomed.

The "Mashup" Exhibition in the Xi'an Art Museum will exhibit works from the following artists: Qian BAI(白茜), Xiaobing KONG(孔曉冰), Yuanyuan LI(李原原), Hong LU(魯虹), Yuming SONG(宋玉明), Zhenhua SUN(孫振華), Jingxia TAN(覃京俠), Ziran WANG(王子蚺), Yingxin WU(吳穎欣), Chao YANG(楊超), Yanfang ZHANG(張燕方), Weidong ZHAO(趙偉東), Lu ZHENG(鄭路).
