Colors, unlimited – Art for Autumn

Autumn Chrysanthemum

Modern Chinese ink and color paintings opt for a more intense and sophisticated color palette, strive for optimum visual impact, reflecting a breakaway from the dominant scholarly monochromatic ink paintings since the Yuan dynasty, exhibiting a renewed interest in the golden azurite and malachite landscape paintings of the Tang and Song dynasty.

Nevertheless, the fine brush techniques, trademarks of Chinese paintings, are still visible and indispensable. Differing from the old masters, the artists distinguished themselves with bold colors and expressive brush strokes, experimenting with new composition, perspective and light.

These splendid colors are well suited for Autumn, enjoy!
