Nostalgic brushwork

Veteran oil painter Dai Ze's solo exhibition in Chongqing is both payback and a gift to the municipality where he was brought up. The retired 101-year-old professor, who once taught at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, grew up in this scenic, dynamic city along the Yangtze River, where he went to art college to study under prominent artists like Xu Beihong, his main mentor, Lyv Sibai and Fu Baoshi. His paintings from the time capture the landscapes and lives of Chongqing and neighboring places like Chengdu, Sichuan province. They have now been returned to their birthplace to be shown at Dai's exhibition at the Chongqing Art Museum, which runs until Oct 15. Titled All Things That Thrive On, the show serves up a nostalgic mood, taking visitors back to the olden days of Chongqing and returning them to its vibrant life these days. It also demonstrates the artist's care for all living things through his still-life depictions, and is a tribute to his wholehearted commitment to art across the centuries.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays. 1 Linjiang Lu, Yuzhong district, Chongqing. 023-6325-0993.
