Let's 'walk, gaze upon, wander and dwell' in this painting


"Early Spring" is a silk and color painting created by Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127) court painter Guo Xi in his later years. The artwork exudes the artist's humanistic care and thought. Building upon realism, the painter extensively employs imagination, empathetically incorporating human gestures and postures into the artwork. How did he manage to so skillfully portray human figures? What unique brushwork techniques did he use? Liu Yong, a famous author and painter, provides his insights.

CGTN's art series "The Song, Painted" is a virtual exhibition of Song Dynasty (960-1279) masterpieces currently housed in museums worldwide. Let's embark on a journey of cultural exploration, zooming in on art from the Song Dynasty and the ethos reflected in the paintings.
