On display 40 works showing the deep spiritual bond between Chinese painter Han Yuchen and Tibet

Han Yuchen, the world-renowned Chinese oil painter, will have a selection of his works exhibited at Palazzo Bonaparte from July 14 to September 4, 2022. Tibet, splendore e purezza (‘Tibet, its people, its landscapes’) will present a series of 40 works centered on Tibet.

Han’s realistic but colorful style, reminiscent of 19th-century European painters like Jean-François Millet and Francisco Goya, creates of dynamic portrait of life on the “Roof of the World,” who’s rich culture and traditions have persisted for thousands of years.

In Han Yuchen’s Tibet, landscape and man become protagonists of the same mysterious, almost impenetrable story, where genuine pride and everyday life coexist and meet in the purity of light of the places and the vital energy of the characters who animate them,” reads the exhibit preview.

Curated by Nicolina Bianchi and Gabriele Simongini, the exhibit is divided into three sections – Landscapes, Portraits and Spirituality – which together emphasize “the deep moral and spiritual bond that unites the region.”
