In the waning days of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), China's first formal art schools were founded in an atmosphere of spirited debate about tradition, reform, and what it meant to be an artist in that culture. The painter Chao Shao-an (1905-1998) came of age following this upheaval. A leader in the modernist movement, Chao strove, like his masters, both "to learn from nature [and to] be inspired by [an] inner sensibility." In his mid-twenties he established the Lingnan Art Studio in order to advance this fresh and vital approach. Chao's fluid brushwork, rich colors, and inventive composition are evident in this calendar's reproductions of twelve of his paintings. All are from the collection of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, one of the largest museums in the Western world devoted exclusively to Asian art.

At the age of sixteen, Chao Shao-an (19051998), a native of southern Chinas Guangdong province, enrolled in the art academy run by Gao Qifeng, one of a handful of fearless artists who had jointly created the Lingnan school of painting. They broke with tradition by introducing modern subjects and perspective from Western art. The impact on Chao was terrific. His painting soon took on the qualities it was to preserve throughout the remainder of his career: vividness, dashing vigor, a bold use of both space and color, and a calligraphic looseness that verges on abstraction. A decade after meeting Gao Qifeng, Chao took a gold medal at an international art exhibition held in Belgium.
