Chinese Art in an Age of Revolution



Chinese Art in an Age of Revolution: Fu Baoshi (1904–1965)
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
Fu Baoshi (1904–1965) was eight years old in 1912 when China's last imperial dynasty was overthrown and the Chinese Republic was established. He subsequently witnessed the divisive warlord era and Communist rebellion of the 1920s, the Japanese invasion and occupation of eastern China from 1937 to 1945, and the Communist Revolution and establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949. Over the last fifteen years of his life, his art reflected China's political transformation under Mao Zedong. Throughout his career, however, Fu remained one of China's great individualist masters. This exhibition treats Fu's forty-year career with some seventy paintings, including many of the artist's recognized masterpieces, drawn from the preeminent holdings of China's Nanjing Museum. The exhibition, augmented by works from a New York private collection, is the most comprehensive treatment of the artist's oeuvre ever presented outside of Asia.
