    A UNIVERSE WITHIN: SUO ZHENHAI'S INSIDE-PAINTED SNUFF BOTTLES FROM THE HONG YUAN COLLECTION
    < Back

    The University Museum and Art Gallery is excited to announce an exhibition of Suo Zhenhai's Inside-painted Snuff Bottles from The Hong Yuan Collection. Contemporary inner painting master Master painter Suo Zhenhai was born in Raoyang, Hebei Province, in 1944, and he studied the art and culture of the Song and Yuan Dynasties, and the painterly styles and minutely detailed depictions of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. A prolific artist, he has exhibited internationally and gained a reputation for his finely executed artworks, as well as for his work at the Hengshui Xisan Inside Painting Art Academy where he taught for years.

    The museum’s exhibition will show some 150 bottles decorated predominantly with landscape painting and genre scenes. Altogether, the array of objects testifies to Master Suo’s ability to represent ‘a universe within’ and to the ongoing interest in and high-quality manufacture of a 300-year medium. The display coincide with the annual meeting of the International Chinese Snuff Bottle Society and our accompanying education programming the will include lectures and guided visits.

    This exhibition has just completed a successful tour of Beijing and Taiwan. Catalogues can be purchased at the museum store.
