Yan Pei-Ming: The Crying Man Visit of the exhibition at the Dijon Museum of Fine Arts
The exhibition of some fifty works by Yan Pei-Ming at the Dijon Museum of Fine Arts testifies to the local roots of this artist, a graduate of the art school of this city and who proposes on this occasion a reinterpretation of the crying of the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy. It is also an opportunity to discover a large collection of paintings by the most internationally known Chinese artist living in France. His work, marked by the refusal of the abandonment of painting, the taste of monumental formats and a strong expressiveness, has been presented in many places around the world, first and foremost the Maeght Foundation, the Louvre, the Belvedere Museum Vienna and the San Francisco Art Institute.
The exhibition will be visited by Mael Bellec, curator of the Chinese Arts Department of the Cernuschi Museum, followed by a free museum and city tour. This free visit is likely to be replaced by a meeting with the artist, currently being negotiated.
