Chongqing, Zhang - National Museum of China

Zhang Chongqing; Song of A Blue Boat
Zhang Chongqing, graduated from the Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1953, and is a professor and postgraduate instructor in the Central Academy of Fine Arts. When he was still a student, 

benefitted from the instructions of Xu Beihong, Dong Xiwen, Dai Ze and others. After graduation, he returned to the academy for the instructions of Mr. Dong Xiwen for one year. In the fine arts circle, Mr. Zhang Chongqing is one of the few professional painters who takes the sea as his subject matter. His oil painting features rigor of the classic painting and the freedom of expressive painting. As far as painting is concerned, he advocates “learning from the Nature, creating the idea by the scene, expressing with the scene and mirroring the man with the scene”. In the meantime, he joins the “vivid flow” of Chinese painting with his oil painting and stresses on the natural presentation of colors as his language. This exhibition (28.09.2016 - 09.10.2016) will present, in the entirety, nearly 180 works of oil painting, sketches, quick-sketches, etc. by Mr. Zhang Chongqing, which were created over years and serve to illustrate fully the art life of the painter.
