Like & Unlike in Shanghai

Jiushi International Art Center on the Bund in Shanghai has a spacious and elegant exhibition of works by Qi Baishi, China’s most famous modern artist.

As well as being well known for his paintings, he was also a prolific carver of seals: one of his epithets was “Rich Man of Three Hundred Seals”.  He published several books of seals, well before his paintings were published.  This exhibition has enlargements of many of his seals on the walls.

After the show you could always nip next door to the Waldorf Astoria for tea and cakes!
