Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Xu Beihong was born in Yixing, China.  He was primarily known for his shuimohua (Chinese ink paintings) of horses and birds, and was one of the first Chinese artists to articulate the need for artistic expressions that reflected a new modern China at the beginning of the 20th century. He was also regarded as one of the first to create monumental oil paintings with epic Chinese themes - a show of his high proficiency in an essential Western art technique.

Xu began studying classic Chi (showing 500 of 6125 characters).
