The art of brush painting delights you

[ From: Clare Liu | Published: 2008-12-01 Views: 2110 | Booked times: 55 ]

Chinese brush painting has 1,300 years of history. A few days ago I visited 93 Painting, a brush painting shop in an antique market. Mr.Zhang, the owner of the shop, kindly received me. He told me that his shop had collected many famous artists' paintings.

A painting named De Tao Tu is a good gift for friends and family. It featured a monkey playing with six peaches. The monkey was depicted so vividly that I could clearly see its hair. In Chinese culture, peaches symbolize longevity.

Another painting depicting five cabbages was also appealing. It was painted by a famous painter from the 1950s. Cabbages represent purity and being a good government official.

93 Painting also features beautiful porcelains and woodcarvings. In one corner of the shop stood a statue of Kwan-yin. It was carved in a  precious Huangyang wood.

What I appreciate:
fine artworks of famous artists

What customers appreciate:
beautiful artworks, reasonable price
