And with such a painter, he painted the entire book and spent 36 years.
This is actually more than three or four times more than the painstaking efforts of Cao Xueqin's "reading for ten years, adding and deleting five times"!
When the National Museum exhibition first exhibited this album in 2004, it shocked the world!
Zhou Hongchang, a famous famous red school artist, said that his work is several times larger than the usual common top red floor paintings, which makes him a favorite.
Fan Jingzhong, a professor at the China Academy of Art, commented on this:
This book is made up of landscaping and paintings. It is very finely furnished. It is large to the pavilion and the porch of the pavilion. It is a small table with a few tables, paintings and wenwan, as well as flowers and trees, wine and fragrant wine, and a nighttime clearing [0x9A8B ], those who rule the history of gardens, crafts or material culture, can pay attention.
Luo Yuming, a professor at Fudan University, commented on this:
Like the novel,《长物志》is an artistic creation that has devoted all of the author's efforts. Two hundred and thirty pictures were unfolded with the plot, the scene was gorgeous and grand, the composition was exquisite and varied, and the characters were rich and interesting, which deepened the impression that the original book brought to the reader.
This《梦影红楼》album has a height of 43.3CM and a width of 76.5CM. It is superb in painting style, gorgeous in style, delicate in style, fresh in style, and rated as a national first-class cultural relic. It is amazing.
The detailed plot of the plot, the fineness of the brushwork, the exquisite composition, and the grandeur of the text are all rare in the paintings of the same subject in the Qing Dynasty.
So, who is the author of the album?
He is Sun Wen who lived 100 years ago from the era of Cao Xueqin.
