When art builds a bridge between East and West

When art builds a bridge between East and West
#Exhibitions

Some great masterpieces of Italian art meet extraordinary works of Chinese art in an exhibition that marks the first attempt to undertake a comparative study of Eastern and Western painting. Among the eighteen authentic treasures of Renaissance art are Leonardo's oil painting La Scapiliata (“The Lady with Disheveled Hair”) and eleven sheets of his manuscript Codex Atlanticus, as well as two precious sketches by Michelangelo and important paintings by some disciples of Leonardo. Valuable ancient Chinese paintings include Transport Carts at the Sluice Gate of the Five Dynasties, A Plain Line Drawing of Taoist Deities from the Southern Song by Liang Kai and A Lady Holding a Fine Silk Fan in the Autumn Breeze by Tang Yin, which he was one of the four great painters of the Ming Dynasty. An exhibition that testifies to the desire for dialogue between East and West, highlighting the distinct characteristics of the two civilizations and the perfect fusion between art and science in art.
