WANG NONG
WANG NONG王農
1926-2013
Wang was a retreating artist to Taiwan.  He learned with Xu Beihong, Li Keran, Wu Zuoren, Li Ku-Tsan successively; his works merged Western techniques with traditional Chinese painting, established an austere style of his own which was concise and powerful and turned a new page of Chinese arts.  Horses were a subject he especially exceled in.  To Xu Beihong’s difference, each leg of his horse was composed and finished by a single line.  Xu’s horse put emphasis on accurate depiction of muscle and bone; Wang’s horse tended to be more impressionistic, it demonstrated his spirit in roughness and among that, brought imagination.
