Fu Baoshi, Landscapes of the Four Seasons, 1950.

Asia House Gallery in London is presenting twentieth-century Chinese works from the Khoan and Michael Sullivan collection in two rotations through 24 May 2008. Michael Sullivan is one of the most influential scholars of Chinese art. His book Chinese Art in the Twentieth Century (1959) was the first in English on the subject, which he continued to explore in Art and Artists of Twentieth Century China (1996).


Shown is Landscapes of the Four Seasons, 1950, by Fu Baoshi.
