Why this is a
Masterpiece

A native of Guangdong, Lin Fengmian went to France in 1920 to study art. Upon graduation in 1925, he returned to China and almost immediately became the pioneer and driving force of western modern art, and founded what is now the National Academy of Art in Hangzhou. He later also included Chinese painting into his oeuvre. His favourite subjects were landscapes, wild geese with reed catkins, beauties and characters from Chinese theatre. His paintings in coloured ink reflect the influence of western modern art on him. He adopted Cezanne’s de-constructive approach to Nature, reducing images to geometric and simple forms in pursuit of the ultimate in aesthetics. He also adopted Matisse’s Fauvist advocation of using pure colour. The economy of his brushwork and use of bright, intense colours tell us his direct perceptions of the world of nature.
