Impressive Chinese Oil Father Which Named Father

3 Jul

An oil painting produced by the painter Luo Zhongli exhibited in China Youth Exhibition held in Beijing in May 1980 caused a great stir. At the exhibition, some people even broke into tears when standing in front of this picture. People were very easily impressed by a touching story or a wonderful piece of music melody. However, it was quite rare that people were extremely moved with tears by an oil painting. In fact, what people impressed was not the picture itself, but the deep emotional feelings conveyed by the picture.

Luo Zhongli graduated from the high school affiliated to Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts in 1968. With the impact of society, he came to Daba Mountain sand had lived there for a whole decade. Such experience made this child who has grown up in the city have a deep sensitive understanding for rural areas and farmers. Several years later, he created the oil painting “Father”, which was made on the farmers in Daba Mountains.

Father expressed a kind of beauty filled with sadness. In this picture, we could see the farmer’s bronzed face with wrinkles overspreading and dry lips slightly opening, rough, and work soiled hands holding a broken teacup, and a pair of tough and helpless eyes looking at you in the sun, on the background of a scene of bumper harvest. Father demonstrated all the elements that could impress people; therefore you could know why this painting was named as the “Father” from any point of view.
