About the Artwork:

Portrait of Wang Zhaojun, 2023. Chen Xiaoping. Ink on rice paper. 

Wang Zhaojun (王昭君) is renowned as one of the Four Beauties of ancient China. Her beauty is often poetically described with the phrase "a falling goose would forget to flap its wings", implying that even a bird would be captivated by her and forget to fly upon seeing her.

Born during the early Western Han Dynasty, Wang Zhaojun's legacy is deeply tied to her sacrifice for peace. According to historical accounts, she willingly volunteered to marry the Xiongnu chieftain in order to establish a peaceful relationship between the Han Dynasty and the Xiongnu nomads, a significant gesture given the longstanding hostilities between the two. This act of matrimonial diplomacy helped ensure peace between the Han Empire and the Xiongnu for many years.

Her story is one of beauty, courage, and sacrifice. Over the centuries, Wang Zhaojun's tale has been the subject of numerous artistic expressions, including paintings, literature, and plays, celebrating her as a symbol of peace and a bridge between cultures.
