This painting represents a good example of how Huang Junbi’s distinct painting style combined both Chinese and Western influences, exemplified by the unusual way he painted clouds and waterfalls.

Waterfalls show the rhythmic movement of water, in contrast to the rather stiff renditions seen in traditional landscape paintings. The White Cloud Hall was the name of Huang’s studio in Taiwan.

(“Debating Art: Chinese Intellectuals at the Crossroads,” curated by Yuhua Ding, with assistance by Elizabeth Emrich, and presented at the Johnson Museum February 2-July 8, 2018)
