Monday presentation on Xu Beihong, Chang Yu, and the Heavenly Dog Society

 

Hi everyone,

My presentation tomorrow will be about modern Chinese painting, in particular two artists Xu Beihong and Chang Yu, and the Heavenly Dog Society painting association that they belonged to in Paris in the 1920s.  Some of my main concerns:

How to talk about Chang Yu not as aberration from the norm but rather representative of the modernist dilemma about realism, political detachment, and aesthetic radicalism.
