“Spring of Soul”
From April 4 till April 30, 2012 in the National art museum of Republic of Belarus there passes an exhibition “Spring of Soul”. The exhibition from the funds of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus presents works of Chinese artists of the 20th and 21st centuries who work in “guo hua” technique of the national painting.
An inseparable union of painting and calligraphy – the art of beautiful writing of letters – is the most significant peculiarity of the Chinese fine arts tradition. Poets write poems with paintbrushes and drawing ink on paper, and artists paint with the same instruments.
The exhibition presents picture-scrolls of contemporary eminent paintbrush masters - Xu Beihong, Mi Wen Jie, Yang Fei Hung, Xiao Yu etc. The oeuvre of the artists fully shaped by the national tradition is in harmony with modern times.
