Landscape Sketches of Mt. Danxia, Guangdong
Xie Zhiliu Chinese
Not on view
In 1963 Xie held a painting exhibition in Guangdong. While there, he visited Mount Danxia, a scenic site celebrated for the reddish surface of its cliffs. He made quite a few pencil sketches of the scenery on coarse paper of varying sizes, and he identified the motifs he used by writing single words and simple phrases onto the sketches. Despite their brevity, the captions vividly capture the extraordinary variety of the natural landscape.
