Portrait masters

Dozens of figure paintings, spanning from the 16th to the 20th centuries, are on show at the Powerlong Museum in Shanghai. They offer a brief look at the changes in styles and motifs of Western art over four centuries, as well as the social values embodied and takes on the world. The exhibition, 400 Years of Western Figure and Portrait Paintings, running through to July 23, brings works of 47 important artists of the period, including Anthony van Dyck, Francois Boucher, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres and Francisco Goya. The show traces the origins and evolution of figure paintings — first centering on the world of deities, fairy tales and religious themes, then zooming into human awakening. The works are from the collection of Tokyo Fuji Art Museum and were previously shown at Liaoning Provincial Museum before traveling to Shanghai.

10 am-6 pm, closed on Mondays.3055 Caobao Road, Minhang district, Shanghai. 021-6221-9111.
