Solo Exhibition of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang, International Preeminent Artist of First Class Standing, Amazes Art World at Palais du Louvre

PARIS, France -- Xingyi Gu, Professor of Guangzhou University School of Humanities announced that Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's solo art exhibition "Seeing Two Worlds in One Flower" was held at Palais du Louvre in Paris between October 10 and 12. Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is a world-renowned painter. Throughout Asia, she is the only artist to whom the New York Academy of Art conferred the title of international preeminent artist of first class standing. The exhibition is located at the Hall des Marechaux of the Musee des Arts Decoratifs.

The art world has classified the quality of ink painting into four different levels: Class of Proficiency, Class of Wonderment, Class of Divinity, and Class of Ease. Artwork of the Class of Proficiency has the ability to present a resemblance of objective reality, achieving likeness in form. This is the first stage of artistic creation. The art world calls it the stage of sketching. This is a stage that an artist cannot skip, yet they also cannot remain at this status quo, because this is an elementary stage. The next level is the Class of Wonderment. Artworks of this Class demonstrates highly skilled techniques. The artist is able to paint anything at will without revealing any trace of effort. However, one also cannot remain stagnant at this stage.

The next level after the Class of Wonderment is the Class of Divinity where the art carries likeness of 'form' and likeness of 'spirit.' In ink painting, the highest state of accomplishment is the Class of Ease where the artist attains natural ease by using simple brushstrokes to fully capture the form. With the most succinct brushwork and the most superb technique, the artist depicts objective reality and attains a state of miraculousness where both form and spirit are fully captured. This is the kind of art that viewers never get tired of appreciating; it leaves a wonderful aftertaste.

Simply put, the artistry of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang has attained the highest level of artistry in ink painting which is the Class of Ease. One of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's paintings Pomegranates in a Basket realized a top auction price of US$1.27 million at the Gianguan Auction House in New York on March 13 of this year. It clearly shows that the art of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is recognized by art collectors and people of foresight alike. This exhibition showcases 27 of Professor Wang's extraordinary artworks each of which has reached the height of the Class of Ease.

More than 200 distinguished members of society, artists, collectors, entrepreneurs, and art lovers attended the exhibition opening; including representatives from French museums, professors from French art institutes, French nobilities, renowned artists, celebrities, representatives from auction houses, art critics and journalists from major news media. They all marveled at the artworks and expressed their praises. They considered this an unprecedented experience for French people.

Many renowned art experts spoke highly of these artworks - including art critic Aude de Kerros, the Artistic Director of Musée Cernuschi Eric Lefebvre, Francesca Baldi of Centre Pompidou, President of Académie International de peinture à l'encre, Mr. Robert Faure, and several representatives from the Pompidou Centre. They were astonished that the level of artistry of Eastern ink paintings surpassed that of traditional western art. Professor Wang is the only artist who achieved it!

From my understanding, this is the only large-scale solo exhibition of an Asian artist that has ever taken place in the Louvre Museum. The artistic accomplishment is proven to be of the excellence of an international preeminent artist of first class standing.

US-based Artist Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang Art Exhibition in Shanghai Exhibition Center Sends Shock Waves Through the Art World

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The art of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is sending shockwaves through the art world. Over the past few decades, Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang has worked quietly and diligently on her art with determination and dedication. Suddenly, she rises to the pinnacle of the art world, and become a preeminent international maestro in the art. She is an American citizen. Her art exhibition opened ceremoniously in the Shanghai Exhibition Center. The exhibition is organized by the Shanghai International Cultural Exchange Association Gallery, and co-organized by Shanghai Xu Beihong Art Research Club, Shanghai University International Exchange Art Center, and Rare Art Inc. of U.S.A.

The opening ceremony was a grand occasion attended by government officials, renowned artists, critics, and distinguished members of society. The exhibition is overwhelmingly well received by art lovers and popularly visited by the public. During his remarks, Lu Ximing, Vice President of Shanghai International Culture and Art Exchange Association expressed his best wishes for the perfect success of the Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang Art Exhibition.

The China Review News reported on May 20 about the opening of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang Art Exhibition on May 18. The review stated: "Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's artistic achievement is at the highest level of the Class of Ease. Her paintings are both super-realistic and of abstract, surrealistic style. The physical forms emanate a spiritual dimension. Dr. Wang's skills are exquisite and profound, and her works carry a strong scholarly spirit. She is a preeminent international maestro in the arts.

Early 2019, the New York Academy of Art formally recognized the outstanding artistic accomplishment of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang and determined that she is a preeminent international artist of first class standing. The Academy presented Dr. Wang with a certificate jointly signed by the President and the Provost. In the same year, a small painting Pomegranates in a Bamboo Basket of the size 18 by 27 inches was auctioned at the highest price of US$1.27 million during the Spring Auction at the Gianguan Auction House in New York.

Seventy of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's artworks of first class international standing are presented in this exhibition, including ink paintings of distinguished style, super-realistic paintings, and surrealistic paintings of abstract colors. These artworks reflect how Dr. Wang is recognized with the status of a preeminent international artist of first class standing. Her substantial and exquisite skills are the reason she has attained such an accomplishment."

Professor Gu Xingyi of Guangzhou University School of Humanities, who is a master student supervisor, a member of the Guangdong Writers Association, and Director of the Guangdong Province Collectors Association, remarked: "Each of Dr. Wang's artworks carries the likeness of 'form' and the likeness of 'spirit.' She arrives at natural ease by using simple brushstrokes that fully capture the forms. Each of her works is refreshing, memorable, and leaves the viewers with a wonderful aftertaste. These artworks are exceptionally rare and precious, and extremely collectible. The artworks in this exhibition are of the highest quality of the Class of Ease...Ancient scholars were of the opinion that the quality of a person's art reflects the quality of their personality...The excellence of the Class of Ease that Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's paintings have attained is precisely a reflection of her noble character."

The art review in Lang Mo states: "With the suspending strokes of the brush, ink splashes in a dancing rhythm, merging with the white space in the composition. In the Qing Dynasty, a poem of the philosopher Wang Chuanshan says: 'A piece of cloud takes on the color of the sun. The light comes neither from within nor without, has no shape and no details. It gives the impression of infinite passion, yet once the passion is dissipated, one does not retain any recollections.'

Mr. Zhong Baihua once said that the ultimate ideal and the highest accomplishment in Chinese art is when an artist can use the swiftness of brushstrokes to capture the imagery while manifesting the essence of the universe from within one's heart. In Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's landscape, flower and bird paintings, not only can we experience such a state, we can also experience the candor of the modern art of painting, and the spiritual impact when art connects directly with our inner mind.

The paintings of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang radiate brightness. This is not the brightness from light, or from the perception of light in Western oil paintings. This brightness is all-encompassing. Dr. Yuhua Shouzi Wang's paintings are rooted in the vigorousness of Eastern philosophy while incorporating the modern elements of Western painting. Her art emanates the inner beauty of her spirit and a greatly generous state of mind.

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's inscriptions are penned in a graceful manner and an elegant style. Her penmanship is delightful and profound, emanating the radiance of nobility. Her calligraphy marvelously blends in with the painting composition, transcending the form to manifest the essence. Dr. Wang is highly achieved in manifesting the deeply meditative quality of Chinese art. The painterly charm of the calligraphy is condensed in the boundless white space upon which a flower, a bird, a tree, a stone, a mountain, or a river illusively appear to deliver the message of boundless deep passion and the immensity of meditative contemplation. The art reflects the greatly universal love of this maestro of fine culture who treats all beings and all matters in the universe with the great love of equal-mindedness. Every detail of the grass, the trees, the mountains and the rocks are created by wondrous brushstrokes. The rendition of the brushstrokes in the style of ease emanates marvelous subtleties and nuances."

Cheng Lanmei, Chairperson of the World Council of Women Artists said: "I am deeply touched after viewing several paintings consecutively. Initially, I thought that the works were painted by a male artist because of the power, the bold spirit, the way the artist uses dry brush and wet brush, and the superb control over light and dark ink colors. Truly speaking, as an oil painter, I paint as if I am creating ink painting in a very clean cut and precise manner. But truly, the difficulties in creating oil paintings cannot be compared to the difficulties in creating ink paintings. It is tremendously difficult to create ink paintings. That's why I deeply admire Dr. Wang's accomplishment in these paintings."

Vincent Robbins, Tenure Professor at the renowned Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles and the Artistic Director of Rare Art Inc. U.S.A., said in his opening speech: "Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang's paintings are sought after by insightful people in the West. Dr. Wang has lived and worked in the West for a long time, she is familiar with the creative characteristics of Western paintings. Dr. Wang applies Chinese ink-wash painting techniques with ease, adopting their strengths in her own creations. Dr. Wang has skillfully integrated the detailed fine brushwork in Western oil paintings and the freehand brushwork in Chinese paintings, as well as the colors of Western oil paintings and the lines of Chinese paintings. Both the Chinese and the Western cultures are blended in her paintings. They are bold and innovative. Dr. Wang's paintings give the viewers a refreshing feeling."

Professor Stephen Farthing, an art scholar of world authority-Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in the United Kingdom, and the former Rootstein Hopkins Research Chair of Drawing at the University of the Arts in London-once commented that "Dr. Yuhua Wang's paintings may draw heavily on the traditions of Eastern art but today they present themselves as extraordinarily Western ideas and images. Free of perspective, Dr. Wang's paintings reach across cultures to celebrate the space that exists intellectually and emotionally between representation and abstraction, between a fact and an idea."

In 2008, the artworks of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang were exhibited in the Gold Room at the United States Capitol. The United States Congress recognized her as "a great artist and sculptor" for her outstanding accomplishments, and officially chronicled such recognition in the Congressional Record.

The artworks of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang exhibited this time are of the highest level of artistry as described in the saying: "The time when one abandons all skills is the time when one is perfectly skilled. As an experienced artist, one returns to a childlike state of mind, bringing a sense of comfort to the art." Dr. Wang's paintings are filled with vivaciousness. This exhibition offers art lovers and the general public the opportunity to comprehend art through the experience of appreciating, viewing and emulating the exhibited works of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang.

Art of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang Sold at Top Price in Spring Auction

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- The International Art Museum of America (IAMA) in San Francisco today announced that on March 18, 2019, the painting "Pomegranates in a Bamboo Basket" by Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang was sold at the exceptional price of US$1.27 million during the spring auction at Gianguan Auctions in New York. Dr. Wang has been recognized by the New York Academy of Art as an international first-class artist. The auction price of this small painting, which is only twenty-seven by eighteen inches, astounded the art market!

The paintings of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang are characterized by divine, out of this world artistic conception. Her paintings carry the likeness of both the form and the spirit, and are created with profound skills. They also carry a strong sense of scholarly essence. There rarely is anyone in this world who can be of comparison. Her artistic skill is solid and formidable. Following the tradition of Chinese ink paintings as her foundation, Dr. Wang also incorporates the super-realistic skills and transcends her works to become that of distinguished style and purity. Her paintings transcend the mundane to attain the class of ease which is the highest of the four classes of artistic mastery.

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang was recognized and chronicled in the United States Congressional Record as "a great artist and sculptor," and "treasure of the world." In 2013, President George Christophides of the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers, and Associations (WFUCA) conferred the title "2013WFUCA" to one of her artworks.

In 2019, a solo exhibition of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang, that was held by the Department of Culture of Thailand, astounded Thailand. The Thai Department of Culture issued official notice to all schools and universities informing them to visit the exhibition and learn from the art of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang. The Department of Culture also thanked Dr. Wang for bringing her art of distinguished quality to Thailand.

The unique artworks of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang are hard to come by. There are a small number of editions in the market. For many years, the unique artworks are collected by admirers and are rarely available in the market. During the recent Gianguan spring auction, a small painting was sold at the shocking price of US$1.27 million, making the top lot of the auction.

With the passing of time, one can only imagine how the art of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang will appreciate in value and become highly sought-after treasure. The reason is, there are rarely any artists who can attain the class of ease, such as Bada Shanren, Shi Tao, Xu Wei, Huang Shen, Wu Changshuo, Qi Baishi, Huang Binhong, and Chen Zizhuang.

In the eyes of art experts, artists such as Ren Bonian, Pan Tianshou, Shi Lu, or Zhang Daqian have only attained the class of wonderment and the class of divinity. They have not achieved the class of ease.

What is even more exceptional is that Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is the only Asian international first-class artist in the world who is ranked at the same level as Cezanne, Gaugain, Monet, and Van Gogh.

He felt as if he had entered a colorful art sanctuary where he was able to leave the noise of the world behind and feel the clarity, peacefulness and serenity in his mind.

Kang also recognized the art of Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang as inspired by Bada Shanren, and commented that the excellence of Professor Wang's art does not lie in how the artist represents the form of nature, but in how she expresses her mind through the forms, and how the movement of the brush captures the spirit.

On July 30, 2008, the United States Congress recognized Dr. Yuhua Wang as a "great artist and sculptor" and officially chronicled such recognition in the Congressional Record. The same record also mentioned that Dr. Wang "takes great pleasure in helping others, is a selfless person whose moral character is noble, and has made great contributions to the development of cultural exchange between the East and the West."

In 2013, President George Christophides of the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers, and Associations (WFUCA) led a group of experts to visit the International Art Museum of America. The group highly commended Dr. Yuhua Wang's artworks that were on view at the time. On the spot, they conferred one of her artworks with the title "2013WFUCA," and especially issued a Passport for Global Ethics to the International Art Museum of America.
