Bold paintings by Chinese artist Fu Baoshi

Fu Baoshi was a Chinese painter during China’s Communist rise, when artists faced pressure to create only nationalist work. His painting, Heaven and Earth Glowing Red, is the main inspiration for Hemmingbirds’ The Vines of Age album art. The 1964 painting boldly contrasts a large, looming red sun against an ethereal landscape. The nod to China is clear, but the sun, interestingly, is only one component in the grand scheme of the painting.
