Foolish Old Man Removing Mountains by Xu Beihong

The seven rules are proper composition, accurate proportion, clear distinction of white and black, natural movements and gestures, harmony between bright and light colors, clear characterization and unambiguous expression of emotions. From these rules, we can see Xu's careful research into traditional Chinese and Western paintings and his quest to combine the painting methods of the two. The rules provide a good summary of his art practice and also represent a big achievement in modern realist fine arts research.

Xu Beihong created thousands of excellent traditional Chinese paintings, oil paintings and sketches during his life. In his traditional Chinese painting Foolish Old Man Removing Mountains, oil paintings Five Hundred Soldiers in The Field and Wait After Me, he depicted traditional Chinese folk tales or historical stories to hint obliquely at contemporary realist themes.
