November No. 44
Steve Owyoung, former curator of the famed Asian Art Department at the St. Louis Art Museum, shares that Chen’s paintings are “a return to Chinese art and its inherently decorative foundations; each work is a contemporary revelation of tradition, an innovative take on its subjects, techniques, and materials.” He comments that it is the work’s ‘masterful technique, its invention, its striking beauty – that makes it so important and relevant.’”
I hope you enjoy discovering the dynamic and enchanting world of Nihonga and especially this work by Chen Wenguang and his artistic journey. This is an exceptional acquisition for an art collection.
