Portraying Realities: How Fu Baoshi’s Art Reflects Post-1949 China

 


Abstract
This research looks at how Fu Baoshi 傅抱石 (1904–1965) employed classical methods and modern elements in his iconic landscape paintings, with an emphasis on the recurrent theme of construction and heavy industry. With reference to Fu’s works, essays, and activities and those of his Jiangsu contemporaries, this study aims to provide a glimpse into how change and redevelopment were depicted, and how interconnected art and politics have come to be in post-1949 China.
