The Paintings of Yu Chunming, May 1 - 31, 2006

The Stanford East Asia Library, in conjunction with the Silicon Valley
Asian Art Center, is delighted to host an exhibit of over fifty Chinese
folk house paintings by Yu Chunming.
Yu Chunming is a well-know Bay Area artist who has been dedicated to
painting the folk houses of China since the 1980s. He has trained both
in Chinese and Western art and thus brings an integration of both
perspectives to his work. Not only are these paintings of interest from
a purely artistic perspective, but they are important because they are
helping to preserve the memory of a type of Chinese architecture that
is rapidly disappearing under the onslaught of the ever-growing Chinese
economy. In other words, this exhibit combines the beauty of the
painter's art while allowing the viewer to study Chinese history and
habitation culture.
