In the Soul, Mountains Art Galloping, an exhibition in the city of Zhengzhou, is now showing dozens of ink paintings by Xu Qinsong, a 64-year-old artist of the classical Chinese style.
The display, which is being held at Henan Provincial Art Museum in Central China through Saturday, has a selection of Xu's works that have been inspired by Han Shanzi, a Tang Dynasty (618-907) monk who lived in caves and wrote poems. Art lovers can expect to see the balance between abstract and figurative approaches that Xu has achieved in his paintings of nature.
