On display in gallery from April 10 through May 20, 2017, ‘Hermit of the West Mountain’ explores the work of Chinese painter and member of the Qing royal family, Pu Ru. Open Monday – Friday from 10am to 5pm or on Saturdays from 10am – 12 pm by appointment only – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
Pu Ru (1896-1963) was a member of the Qing royal family at the time Imperial China was overthrown. Pu Ru adjusted to his change in circumstances by retreating to a monastery in the West Mountains and mastering Chinese traditional painting, calligraphy, and scholarship. He is considered one of the last of the true Chinese literati and artist scholars. Pu Ru is one of the most renowned and accomplished 20th century Chinese artists. The collector is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Pu Ru’s work in the U.S. The exhibit displays a wide range of pieces, highlighting the versatility and skill of the artist, and offers a strong look at Chinese traditional art.
