The Painting Exhibition on the Theme of Tang Poetry

China Cultural Center Den Haag is holding a painting exhibition on the theme of Tang poetry.

Tang poetry is not only the outstanding literary legacy but also a shining pearl in the treasure house of world literature. The widely read and well-known book Three Hundred Tang Poems is a fine anthology of Tang poems and is much adored and admired for its abundant variety of works, poems and styles. Chinese calligraphy painting is another exemplary category of Chinese culture and art, which, parallel to Tang poetry but in a different form, is dedicated to representing the artistic conception of beauty. These two art forms share the characteristics of deep-rooted cultural traditions, profound connotations and powerful immersion, and the morphological being of the two entwining and mingling art forms exudes even more charm. 

At this art exhibition, nine famous Chinese calligraphy painting artists, including Yin Canghai, Chu Zhonghai, Yu Heng and Zhou Yangbo, are invited to showcase their works which present the scenery in ancient Chinese poetry and interpret the profound Chinese cultural heritage which is embodied in Three Hundred Tang Poems for people from other countries to sense and savor this unique national art treasure.
