“The beauty of fragrant grass” has long been a highly praised tradition in Chinese culture. The admirations from the poets and literati scholars gradually turned into symbolic phrases. Through the development of history of art, flower and bird, figures and landscapes have established themselves as the most important categories in Chinese painting.

 

Daguan Gallery is pleased to have invited artist He Hongyu to present her works in her first solo exhibition in Taiwan. We believe ink art lovers would be able to appreciate her delicate approach to conventional flower and bird paintings in the exhibition “Classical Refinement”.
