Woman pioneer

When Pan Yuliang entered the world of art a century ago, she faced a situation in which women didn't enjoy as much freedom as men. From a humble background but born with a natural sensitivity toward art, Pan blazed a trail in painting. She studied art in Europe and lived there for decades until her death. Her life encouraged many women to pursue their dreams. Today, Pan's colorful paintings are among popular works shown at museums. She is considered one of the most influential modern female artists from China. Pan Yuliang's Art World, an ongoing exhibition at Nanjing Museum in Jiangsu's provincial capital, pays tribute to this unique figure in modern Chinese art. Pan is known for integrating Chinese and Western art styles. Her landscapes show the solid training of techniques she received in Europe, under the influence of impressionism, modernism and fauvism. Her still lifes and figure paintings of women present a poetic atmosphere derived from her cultural roots in China. Pan's works are a celebration of life, nature and individuality. The exhibition runs through to Oct 10.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays. 321 Zhongshan Donglu, Xuanwu district, Nanjing, Jiangsu province.025-8480-7923.
