Art movement


Songjiang, now a district of Shanghai, was a place favored by artists who sought to reinvigorate painting in the late Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) by emphasizing copying the works of old masters, their refined brushwork and the cultivation of a scholarly temperament. The movement pioneered by Dong Qichang and Shen Shichong became known as the Songjiang School. The influence of the school in Chinese art history is in the spotlight at an exhibition at Yunjian Arts Center. The show gathers hundreds of high-definition printed images, including those of the Songjiang School masterpieces, as cataloged in A Comprehensive Collection of Ancient Chinese Paintings, an ambitious project that took some 17 years to accomplish and traces the evolution of Chinese painting through the centuries. The exhibition, previously staged in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, and the National Museum of China in Beijing, runs until Oct 8, and displays all 60 volumes of the catalog and representative examples from different periods, highlighting the influence of Dong's opinions on the work of artists across the country.

8:30 am-6:30 pm, closed on Mondays. 26 Renmin Nan Road, Songjiang district, Shanghai.
