Wang Hui at The Metropolitan Museum of Art opens ‘The Landscape Art of Wang Hui’

Wang Hui, the most celebrated painter of late 17th-century China, played a key role in reinvigorating past traditions of landscape painting as well as in establishing the stylistic foundations for the imperially sponsored art of the Manchu Qing court. An artist of protean talent and immense artistic ambition, Wang developed an all-embracing synthesis of historical landscape styles that constituted one of the greatest innovations in the arts of late imperial China. On exhibition 9 September through 4 January, 2009, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
