    About

    A student at the Guangzhou Municipal School of Fine Arts in the early 1930s, Liu Lun had emerged, by 1936, as an active member of the Modern Prints Society. By then he had also returned from a short sojourn in Japan, during which time he had published a collection of prints depicting rural China in association with the White and Black Society. In addition to woodblock prints, Liu Lun made a series of prints with chiselled rocks, a technique that evokes an earlier native graphic tradition rather than modern lithography. The experiment received much encouragement from Lu Xun. With the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War, Liu Lun actively participated in the resistance effort and edited Resistance Woodcuts. Like many contemporary woodcut artists, he created prints to document war scenes and exhort patriotism. The subtitle to Relieve the Wounded Soldiers indicates that it was meant to be a truthful record. It is significant that English translations were provided. The intention was to appeal for international humanitarian support. The maimed soldiers, in disarray and no longer identified by either uniforms or weapons, present a sorry sight of suffering and helplessness. Even the temporary shelter offers no adequate sanctuary.
