Fan Zeng advocated "returning to classicality and nature" and practiced the aesthetic principle of "taking poetry as the soul and book as the bone". He made great contribution to the development of Chinese painting and created the forerunner of "neoclassicism" art. In 1984, Fanzeng art museum was established in Okayama, Japan; in 1986, he donated and presided over the Department of Oriental Art of Nankai University; in 2008, Fanzeng Art Museum of Nantong University was opened; in 2011, he won the lifetime achievement award of Chinese art and literature award. There are twenty-four words of self-evaluation: infatuated with painting, able to read; occasionally as a dictionary, quite express their feelings; good history of reading, slightly through the changes of ancient and modern times.
This picture of eight immortals is fresh and handsome in style and novel in composition. It shows a vast space within a few feet and shows the style of a master. The eight immortals talk about Tao leisurely on the rocks and between the springs. The three groups of figures are static or dynamic. They grow and develop each other, but they don't separate. In the background, the waterfall flows straight down, the picture is left blank, showing the misty clouds and the main characters. The figure painting is a typical style of Mr. Fan. It is mainly composed of lines, slightly tinged with halo, with vivid and peaceful expression. The use of ink on mountains and stones has increased significantly, and the distance between them and the characters has been widened to highlight the massiness of mountains and stones, while the painting of trees is between them. The bone technique uses a pen, and the pen is amazing, but there is no Qi of drawing a crossbow with a sword. The light part is like mist, the thick part is like eyes, and the pen and ink are free and easy, full of pain and vividness, which shows the ability of "no one who has gone beyond this". The Qing Dynasty and Gao Hua revealed are not what ordinary painters can imagine.
The calligraphy brush on the painting is impartial. The momentum of splitting the air is like taking a high mountain and dropping a stone. The pen is amazing without the suspicion of drawing a sword or drawing a crossbow. Like a cone, like a sand, not flowing in frivolity, like a leak in a house, like a sink, but implicit. The center also uses the flank, which is as heavy as a falling stone, as light as a pocket, and as hard as soft. Its use of ink is sketchy, light as mist, dense as two bright eyes. The whole picture has a deep brush power and a strong style. When it's sketched, it looks like a cloud coming out of the mountain. The ink is smooth. There's no false Guijiao. There's no affectation interest. The lines are smooth and free. The strong and elegant method and the elegant and ancient artistic conception are really magnificent and unique. It's worth collecting and enjoying.
From the beginning to maturity, artists need to go through a long and arduous period of artistic tempering. Historically, Qi Baishi gradually formed his own style after he was 57 years old. In his later years, he put forward the "aging transformation" and finally reached the peak of his own art. Therefore, in a sense, the age of an artist is also an important reference for the value of his works. Fan Zeng has been more than a rare age. After decades of hard work, he has reached a golden age for painters in terms of physical strength and technique. To some extent, it increases the value and appreciation space of his works. From the perspective of collection investment, fan Zeng's works are popular with collectors because of his unique artistic style, and the price of his works keeps rising.
