Traditional Chinese painting relies more on observation, memorization, and inspiration rather than on sketching on site. Nature sketching was introduced into China from the West at a time when modern Chinese artists turned to pursue realism in artistic creation. Such historical choice has made nature sketching a widely accepted method in Chinese art. This exhibition adopts a novel design by juxtaposing Mr. Zhu's nature sketches with his artworks based on preparatory sketches. This arrangement reveals the relationship between nature sketching and creation, and at the same time, sheds light on Mr. Zhu's unique way of creation.
