The development of Chinese paintings is like a symphony, where the classical themes of figures, flowers and birds, and landscapes are interpreted in a historical context.
Painters from the Six Dynasties to the Tang Dynasty, e.g. GU Kaizhi and WU Daozi, developed figure painting paradigms in history. Artists of the past generations created many masterpieces which were diverse in subject matter. The paintings, subtle or casual in techniques, ultimately penetrate the time and reveal their artistic charm in a radiant manner.
Through the selected figure painting masterpieces, GU Song will share with us the cultural stories of the figures in the paintings.
