Art Show Held In Vancouver to Commemorate Xinhai Revolution

More than 85 years after his death, Dr. Sun Yat Sen is still providing inspiration for an art show that opened Saturday in Vancouver as part of the Canadian city's ongoing commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai (1911) Revolution.

The show, sponsored by Chinese Consulate-General in Vancouver, enables viewers to see, from different perspective, Sun Yat Sen, forerunner of the Chinese revolution and a frequent visitor to Vancouver during his lifetime, through 110 calligraphic and paintings, in both Chinese traditional and Western styles.

Among many excellent brushstroke paintings and traditional portraits, it is the depictions of Sun in his struggle to overthrow the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) that really stand out.
