Superstars of modern Chinese ink art shine in Nanjing

The Nanjing Museum in Nanjing, capital of East China's Jiangsu province, is staging a grand exhibition of modern Chinese ink art. First of its kind in terms of scope, the exhibition presents 158 signature works by eight of the most influential ink painting masters of modern China, including Qi Baishi (1864-1957), Pan Tianshou (1897-1971), and Xu Beihong (1895-1953).

"Their works in museum collections are officially rated as national treasures, and their painting styles and artistic thoughts have had a far-reaching impact on younger generations of Chinese ink painters," said Pang Ou, curator of the exhibition, art historian with the Nanjing Museum. " Their works on the market at home and abroad are the Holy Grails at major auctions."

Running until Feb 28, the exhibition will unfold in two phases due to a limited exhibition space, organizers said. Before Jan 10, 97 works will be on show, and from Jan 10 to Feb 28 another 61 works will be on display.
