And indeed, this style is distinguished by special attention to detail, splendor, decorativeness, splendor and grace.
«For paintings in this style is characterized by the presence of carefully drawn contour lines, depicting objects and details,» says the organizer of the festival Julia Tolmacheva. «Sometimes this style is called» the style of clear lines. « Having made the outline, the artist paints the picture with mineral paints. Since these paints are very durable and create a bright color, the paintings in Gunby style look very decorative. It was in the style of Gunby that the artists who painted the interiors of the palaces of the emperor and the nobility worked. «
Artists who worked for the emperor, were required to own the style of Gunby. The emperor had a whole staff of artists who worked only in this technique. And only wealthy people could afford to buy such pictures. Scrolls were kept in the strictest secrecy in the palace of the emperor and the chambers of wealthy families.
From September 7, an exhibition of works by Russian artists will begin. Also the works of the famous Chinese artist Gong Xueqing will be presented. He is not only the successor of the Chinese classical drawing technique in Gunby style, but also an innovator who managed to unite the western manner of drawing with Chinese techniques, creating a new style in Chinese painting. Gong Xueqing boldly combines realistic plots and illusion in one work. His paintings are distinguished by an unusual rhythm filling the fullness and emptiness of space, and the beautiful structure of the composition - shows the ability and skill of the artist.

The works of professional contemporary artists will amaze those present with a thorough drawing: the antennae of moths, the animal’s fur, the glow of the cheeks of the beauties, or the subtlest color nuances of flower buds, all this is masterly reflected in the works of artists.
