Artist Profile
 
Wu GuangZhong born into a poor peasant family in Yixing,Jiangsu in 1919
He studied art for six years at the National Arts Academy  in Hangzhou, majoring in Western painting.
He also won a scholarship to Paris in 1946, studing  oil painting.

In the forty years since his return from Paris, Wu Guangzhong persisted in his constant but long and arduos search for a way to blend Eastern and Western art. Because of differences in opinion on art, he was criticised and persecuted. What he studied in France was mainly the nude in oil, but he was forced by social and political circumstances to paint landscapes instead.

With his easel and oil painting gear on his back, he began transversing the graet mountains, rivers, valleys and forests all over China in his pursuit for the beauty of landscapes.

Today , Wu GuangZhong has finally won international reconition as one who has successfully found a new way to " sinicise oil painting and modernise Chinese painting" , an achievement which is no mean feat.
