In 1947, Wu went to Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts of France. He also became the only one who decided to go back to an uncertain China to become “a plum blossom in the winter of one’s hometown instead of a rose in an already prosperous garden of others”.

WU GUANZHONG 5

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wu's style, (or rather styles), is unmistakable. His landscapes in oils are marked by a delicacy of touch and colour, a purity and fluidity of line, which are very seductive. He also liked to work in the traditional Chinese medium of ink on paper, and his studies of trees and plants have a vitality and freedom that sometimes verges on abstract expressionism, although Wu always denied that abstraction was an issue. Wu was a remarkable man, not only for his prodigious talent, but for the courage with which he stood up to the Maoist ideologues – unlike his teacher Lin, who was crushed by them – for the lucidity of his writings about art, and for the demands he made upon himself. He was a prolific painter, perhaps excessively so, and not all his work, in particular in the too-fluid Chinese medium of brush and ink, is up to his best standard. Realizing this, in 1991 he destroyed several hundred of his paintings. He died a much-admired "old master" 2008 Wu Guanzhong (1919-2010)

“In searching for all the marvelous peaks to make sketches, for thirty years during winter, summer, spring, and autumn, I carried on my back the heavy painting equipment and set foot in the river towns, mountain villages, thick forests, and snowy peaks – from the farthest corner of the Eastern Sea to the border towns of Tibet, from the ruins of ancient Greek Gaochang (in Xinjiang) to the isles of seagulls, I stayed in truck stops, courtyards of fishermen’s homes, factory buildings, and broken temples....In all of these I trained myself to develop endurance.” Wu Guanzhong Life, 2001
