Theoharakis Foundation in collaboration with the Beijing Academy of Fine Arts presents for the first time in Greece the work of a great Chinese painter Qi Baishi, whom the British Encyclopedia characterizes as the last great traditional Chinese painter. Qi Baishi (1863-1957) was born into a poor rural family and was a self-taught painter with the help of a manual from the Qin Dynasty. In his 40s he traveled throughout China, inspired by its landscapes and became a great master of painting Dono Gongbi, who is characterized by fine touch and great detail. Famous in his life, he was honored at 92 with the International Peace Prize. His dreamy landscapes, fish, crabs and flowers are his favorite themes, which he has mastered throughout his life with a particular painting perfection.
