Hillside art pays respect to master artist

A hillside in Qingtian County, Zhejiang Province shows a large piece of crop art with the image of a horse and Chinese characters to commemorate the late Chinese master painter Xu Beihong (1895-1953). Xu was a pioneer to introduce Western painting into China and was good at painting horses in freestyle brushwork. The crop art was the idea of Chen Lingjuan, 108. She was one of Xu's students in the 1930s. The whole piece was made of young crops and flowers and is 2,700 square meters in size.
