Xu Beihong (July 19, 1895 September 26, 1953), Han nationality, formerly Xu Shoukang, born in Qiting Town, Yixing City,
Jiangsu Province, is a modern Chinese painter and art educator.
Xu Beihong likes to draw horses to express his ambition, while most of the pictures of cats are drawn by him to reward his friends.
"A hundred years of great craftsman" takes you to appreciate Xu Beihong's legendary "cat" works.
We are familiar with the lion cat crouching on the stone, curling up, ready to go, quiet as a place, moving as a rabbit.
Master sketched out the rock with a thick pen. The ink was thick and light.
The rock tilted from the center of the picture to the lower right corner, occupying one third of the whole picture, giving people a sense of preciseness and strangeness.
The banana leaves slanted out from the back of the rock write the vein of the leaves with a fine pen, covered with green flowers, green and thick, and scattered.
It seems that although they can cover the midday sun, there are a few rays of sunlight sprinkled on the fake mountain stone from among the leaves.
The cat seems to dodge.
The master's pursuit and expression of the light leap to the paper. The outline is drawn in light ink, and the brush is full of texture.
The lines are coherent and different, which makes the muscles with great explosive power hidden under the fur.
The description of the cat's eyes is even more in-depth.
Its eyes are like amber, its pupils are like paint, its eyes are like electricity, its gaze is like thinking,
it's like waiting for the opportunity to see the trend, so that it can make a great earth shaking act.
It's the true portrayal of a moment of calm before the storm, and it's the place where the whole picture is vivid.
Xu Beihong describes the details of the cat's face with extremely delicate strokes, perfectly integrates realism and freehand brushwork,
sets off the charm of the cat with skillful techniques, liberates the brushwork greatly, achieves the unity of form and spirit, and has a very high collection value.
