After three years of construction work, the Liu haisu Art Museum reopened to the public at its new location on Yan’an road W.
Named after Liu haisu, a major figure in China’s New Art Movement, the museum first opened in 1995 on hongqiao road. The new six-hall venue covers 12,000 square meters.
A prominent painter and noted art educator, Liu played a vital role in the Chinese art world for nearly seven decades. He traveled extensively in China and abroad. When he was in europe, he rubbed shoulders with some of the world’s most prominent early 20th-century artists, including Picasso, whom he met in Paris in 1929.
Liu’s own works were remarkable for their blending of traditional Chinese painting techniques with those of european artistic movements, including Impressionism and its associated schools.
