Chao Shao-an’s vivid brush-and-ink paintings make bold use of space and color, with a calligraphic looseness that verges on abstraction. Chao came of age during a period of artistic upheaval in his native China and broke with tradition by introducing modern subjects and perspectives from Western art. Ultimately he became known as a leader in the modernist movement. The 12 masterful paintings presented in this calendar are characteristic of Chao’s inventive compositions.
