Details

  • Catalogue text

    Chen Hengke was born into a prominent literati family from Xiushui (then Yining) in Jiangxi province. As an artist he was particularly interested in the late Ming and early Qing Individualist painters, many of whose works he encountered in Japanese collections while he was a student in Tokyo. On his return he taught at Nantong in Jiangsu province and at Changsha in Hunan; later he was active in Peking, where he taught and where in 1920 he founded the Society for Chinese Painting. He helped establish Qi Baishi as a mainstream artist, and to further the acceptance of the Shanghai School painters.
