Born in 1911 in Hubei Province, Li Qingping began to study abstract impressionist painting in 1932 and devoted the rest of her life to modern painting.
In 1942 and afterwards, she held solo exhibitions in Beijing, Nanjing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Wuhan, Wuxi, Chongqing, Taipei, Hong Kong and Japan, earning critical acclaims.
She suffered a lot during the Culture Revolution and made a living by collecting wastes. But she never gave up painting and practiced with pigment bottles she picked.
She was politically rehabilitated in 1982 and made up her lost time by creating a large amount of artworks. The collection of her masterpieces, “Li Qingping: Pioneer of Chinese Modern Art,” has been published to coincide with her exhibition opening on December 28.
The exhibition in Suzhou Art Museum will run through February 28, 2013. It is free to visitors.
