Intellectual sculptor

Hsiung Ping-ming, born in Nanjing and lived in France for 55 years until his death, taught Chinese culture, philosophy and calligraphy for decades at the Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilizations of the New Sorbonne University in Paris. He also drew, painted and made sculptures with great passion. His artworks show the influence of modern art movements prevailing in Europe, and also reveal the scope and depth of the studies he carried on in Chinese literature, philosophy and calligraphy, thereafter, leveraging his artworks to a philosophical height. The Returning Sculptor, an exhibition at the National Art Museum of China until May 11, commemorates the 100th anniversary of Hsiung's birth. It gathers more than 150 artworks from his oeuvre, transmitting a charisma of tenderness and modesty and the open mind of his scholar parents. The exhibits are from separate donations by Hsiung's family and C. N. Yang, the Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist and a lifelong friend of Hsiung since they were 7 years old.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays.1 Wusi Dajie, Dongcheng district, Beijing. 010-6400-1476.
