the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno
wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信
About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin
上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year
posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.
According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信
mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be
上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.
The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in
2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信
14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.
上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi
s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.
“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信
1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.
上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint
ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma
o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信
Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin
上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu
rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.
According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信
ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col
上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.
“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp
ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.
“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th
e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le
ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”
