Shi Lu (1919–82) was a modern master of Chinese painting, who maintained his unique artistic vision during a time of political and cultural revolution. ‘One of my hands stretches into tradition,’ he wrote, ‘the other stretches into life.’
Shi Lu: A revolution in paint presents a fascinating overview of Shi Lu’s art and life, set against the background of China’s 20th century.
