Mount Huang surrounded by clouds

The juxtaposition of strong splashed colours in this painting derives from Liu Haisu’s experience with oils when he trained in Europe. Mount Huang was his favoured subject in his later years. The inscription reads: ‘Painted by Liu Haisu at his tenth visit to Shixun gang [literally ‘Bridge of Stone Shoots’] on Mount Huang, at the age of 93.’

    Liu Haisu was one of the leading reformers of traditional painting. He founded the Shanghai Art Academy in 1912 when he was sixteen, and later trained in Europe. The juxtaposition of strong splashed colours in this painting derives from his experience with oils, and they are here combined with traditional ink to portray the famous sacred mountain, Huangshan, which was a favoured subject of Liu Haisu in his later years.
