About Wu Guanzhong exhibition at Ashmolean Museum

Wu Guanzhong (1919–2010) is one of the twentieth century’s most admired Chinese painters. Throughout his career, from his student days to his final years, he engaged with European painting alongside Chinese traditional paintings.

This exhibition comprises works lent by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, selected from a recent donation of 450 paintings and sketches from the artist’s family, and represents every decade of Wu Guanzhong’s career from the 1950s onwards in oils, ink, pencil and other media.

The exhibition is in Gallery 11 - the Sullivan Gallery for Chinese Paintings - and is supported by the Denys Firth Family Foundation.

Admission is FREE, but a free Museum ticket is required​​​​​
