Qi Baishi

Size: Length 40cm Height 30cm (approx.)

Qi Baishi is known, along with Wu Changshou and Zhang Daqian, as the most notable painter in contemporary Chinese art. Qi Baishi's works are done using large bold brush strokes and a bright color palette, contrasting with the traditional court styles seen in the art of the previous imperial dynasties. His works are often reflective of the avant-garde artistic trends that occurred China soon after the fall of the Qing empire in 1912.

In this work, Qi presents the viewer with a close-up of a blooming lotus, a leaf, and a small lotus bud. Akin to America's Georgia O'Keeffe, Qi Baishi's works tend to encourage the viewer to pay attention to the beauty found in the details of the natural world.
