Museum to Feature Art Pieces Done By Guangdong Artists
The Shenzhen Museum hopes to introduce Chinese art to the public and at the same time introduce the achievements done by ancient artists that were born or have lived in the Guangdong Province. During the ancient times these Guangdong artists were not famous or as popular as the other artists that are living in other parts of the country. By doing this exhibition the museum shows off pieces made by Guangdong artists that illustrate the development of Cantonese art.
The painting exhibit will also include pieces paint by female artists such as Ma Quan, a well known female painter from the Qing Dynasty. Ma’s work has increased in value in the past years with her paintings having a average price of 50,000 yuan per foot. Another outstanding piece of work being displayed is a bamboo painting done by Zheng Banqiao, known as one of the strange scholars in Yangzhou was known for painting plants especially Bamboo.
