L’étranger mélan­colie

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

The Western art was so amaz­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing in the first half of the 20th cen­tury. At the time, the flour­ish of “La Belle Epoque” (The Twi­light of the 19th Cen­tury) re­mained. Mean­while, a new world was born from the ashes of war, in which mod­ern art move­ments burst out and var­i­ous avant-garde arts emerged. Th­ese at­tracted artists from all over the world. Chi­nese artists flowed to the West af­ter 1911, open­ing up a pe­riod with the most fre­quent ex­changes be­tween Chi­nese and Western cul­ture. This ex­hi­bi­tion se­lects the most “po­etic” works of the great artists who flowed to the West dur­ing this pe­riod. They had a back­ground in Chi­nese clas­si­cal cul­ture and ded­i­cated them­selves to Western clas­si­cal art, im­pres­sion­ism and fau­vism af­ter go­ing West. In the process of learn­ing Western art and cul­ture, th­ese strangers re­flected and made the once-in­vis­i­ble col­li­sion be­tween Eastern and Western cul­tures vis­i­ble. All of a sud­den, a new world opened up. The in­tel­lec­tu­als of this time pur­sued an un­der­stand­ing of the world through study, while they never for­got to re­turn to their own roots in art. In spite of the Western style of their form, their works are filled with Ori­en­tal melan­choly, not re­ly­ing on in­scrip­tions and po­ems. This part was based on the in­tro­duc­tion posted on the web­site of Long Mu­seum. Date: Un­til July 8, 2018; 10 am to 5:30 pm, Tues­day to Sun­day; closed on Mon­days Venue: Long Mu­seum (Pudong)
