Hua Yan's "Album of Sketches from Life"

ISBN: 9789575626488

Album of Sketches from Life" is undated, but judging from a combination of evidence, such as painting technique, style of calligraphy, and use of seals, it is most likely Hua Yan's late work from after the age of sixty. The album leaves present a wide range of figural, bird, insect, animal, and aquatic subject matter. Interspersed and apparently unconnected, the forms depicted here nonetheless all appear quite humorous and animated with great expression. Truly encompassing and illustrating a spectrum of themes, the forms fully reveal the artist's own personal disposition, in contrast to a mere pursuit to capture the appearance of things. The two albums in their entirety are being specially presented in Gallery 208 in the National Palace Museum's main exhibition building, offering audiences a uniquely rich and dazzling aesthetic experience from the brush of Hua Yan.
