The artist, HO Chao-Chu was one of the first artists to gain renown in the postwar period, having taken the main prize at the Taiwan Exhibition and Taiyang Exhibition many times. Because his studio was located at the Danshui riverside, for thirty years Ho painted the mountains, the ocean, the trees, and the water there. His early creations were realistic and painted in dark hues, but later, influenced by Picasso’s cubism and the bright colors and warm sunlight of South East Asia, he abandoned his realistic style of painting and began painting in bright colors, with an emphasis on lines and geometric shapes to create half-abstractions. His piece, “Danshui Vista” is a far-away bird’s-eye view of the Danshui River. The arrangement is broad, the colors bright, and the atmosphere expansive.
