Ashmolean Museum – Beyond the Brush: Abstract Ink Paintings since 1960

4 Apr 2017 to 28 Aug 2017 - Explore the abstract ink paintings created by leading Chinese artists, all members of the Fifth Moon Group – regarded as a forerunner of the modern art movement in Taiwan in the 1960s.

Chinese ink, acrylic and collage were combined to create vibrant images. Most ink paintings blended the brush strokes of Chinese calligraphy with the shapes and colours of modern Western art. Works by Liu Kuo Sung, Chen Ting Shih, Chuang Che and Fong Chung Ray will be displayed.
