Chen Danqing is considered a master of contemporary painting in China. Called a “strong personality with strong paintings”, Chen owned and operated an art gallery in New York for most of the 80’s and 90’s, returning to China to teach at Qinghua University but later resigning over controversy regarding mandatory English proficiency requirements for all Chinese students. Weng Yunpeng, one of Chen’s first five students, said, “Danqing has never been just a painter. He is an intellectual with a social conscience.”
