“Memory in South China”—Yu Zijun Watercolour Solo Exhibition Feb. 21—Mar. 28, 2009

This 82-year-old artist is the second generation that received a proper academic education of western fine arts in China. Yu Zijun graduated from the famous Shanghai Fine Arts School, the first private fine arts school founded by great art master Liu Haisu in modern China’s history.
His watercolours show the spectacular landscapes of South China during the old days with a very poetic vision. His imaginative paintings convey a strong feeling of tranquility that is true to traditional oriental art.
