Sketches of Nudes by Tsang Kai-hong

This book is the catalogue of the exhibition, “Sketches of Nudes by Tsang Kai-hong”, which features Tsang’s recent sketches of nudes, as well as earlier drawings and engravings. His drawing skills were originally founded on the careful attention to modelling, volume and texture of the Soviet socialist realistic manner of the 1950s. He later assimilated German expressionistic style, and a geometrical approach, with traditional drawing and Chinese painting techniques. Tsang’s recent sketches of nudes are characterized by rhythmic line and subjective creativity, rendering in his figures the element of resonance in the language of Chinese painting. The art of the nude reflects not the reality of a model, but the perception of the body’s beauty expressed by the artist.
