Footnotes

  • 劉海粟 黃海奇觀 設色紙本 鏡片 一九七八年作

    Exhibited and Published
    Modern Chinese painting - abstract expressions of the brush, Warwick Arts Trust, 20 February-24 March 1985, no. 26 p. 11

    Anhui's Yellow Mountain (Huangshan) has inspired Chinese landscape painters for centuries, entranced by its wondrous rocky spires, expressive pines and cloud-filled gorges. Liu Haisu visited the mountain ten times, and the dramatic views became a favorite subject matter for his later paintings. The contrast of the brightly splashed mineral reds and blues juxtaposed by the unpainted areas representing the billowing clouds evinces the artist's training in European oil painting as well as his deep understanding of traditional Chinese landscape painting.
