On a par with the talented couple in art circle like Zhao Mengfu and Guan Daosheng,

and the other is the No. 1 of the Shanghai style painting amid the late 20th century.


As Xie was one of the few masters in Republic of China period, the passing away of his wife Chen Peiqiu marks the termination of their legend in the art history.

To memorize the two masters, Xiling Yinshe makes a point of scheduling the sale:
