We usually go to the supermarket to buy a whole prepared chicken, which is only a few tens of yuan. If there is a 5 million delicious chicken on your table, would you be willing to eat it? 


First of all, today our blog post will mention a famous Chinese painting and calligraphy master Qi Baishi, Qi Baishi (1864-1957), from Xiangtan, Hunan, master of Chinese painting in the 20th century, one of the top ten calligraphers in the 20th century, 20th century  One of the top ten painters, world cultural celebrities.


Mr. Qi Baishi

The strong rustic flavor, the simple farmer's consciousness, the innocent and romantic childish innocence, and the poetic aftertaste are the inner life of Qi Baishi's art. The warm and lively colors, the strong contrast between ink and color, the naive and childish modeling and brushwork, work together.  

The extreme composition of writing, the composition of the ordinary and the strange, as Qi Baishi's unique artistic language and visual shape, relatively speaking, it is the external life of Qi Baishi's art.

This is a piece of "Great Lucky Picture" created by Qi Baishi after his "decayed years reform". The transaction price was 34.16 million RMB, and the transaction time was December 2010. Let's enjoy the famous paintings of Qi Baishi together.

"Da Ji Tu"

"Da Ji Tu" is full of vigorous and vigorous brushes, with dripping colors, especially the long tail feathers. The brushes are sharp and penetrating on the back of the paper, which shows the most skill.  

The reason why Qi Baishi's flower and bird paintings have such a strong interest in life and vivid performance is due to his long-term in-depth and meticulous observation of objects.

Qi Baishi advocated that the art is "between the like and the not like", and the decay method has formed a unique style of freehand Chinese painting, with red flowers and ink leaves, especially melons, fruits, vegetables, flowers, birds, insects, and fish, as well as characters and landscapes.  

He shared the reputation of "Southern Wu and Northern Qi" with Wu Changshuo for a time; combining Qi Baishi's simple folk art style with traditional literati painting style, it reached the peak of modern Chinese flower and bird painting.

In the picture, there are a total of seven chickens foraging in the field. On average, the price of each chicken is close to 5 million yuan. It seems that this chicken is really expensive!

For such an expensive chicken, I have to use a magnifying glass to enlarge the image for everyone to appreciate and evaluate.


The seven chickens in Qi Baishi’s "Great Lucky Picture" either bow their heads and peck at each other, or look at each other, or stretch their necks to look far away. They are all in shape and spirit; or their fur color is brilliant, or white feathers are as snow, or hair is as black as lacquer, and the crown is all.  Bright as blood, strong and strong.

Qi Baishi was greatly influenced by Chen Shizeng in the art of painting, and Qi Baishi also absorbed the strengths of Wu Changshuo.  Qi Baishi specializes in flowers and birds, his pen is strong and full of ink, and he is strong and sharp.  


But the painting insects are meticulous and extremely delicate.  Qi Baishi also praised Xu Wei, Zhu Da, Shi Tao, and Jinnong.  Yougong shrimp and crabs, cicadas, butterflies, fish, birds, and ink are dripping, permeating the vitality of nature.  

The composition of the landscape is singular, and it is full of creativity. The seal carving is unique, and the calligraphy is extraordinary, and it is for everyone.  Qi Baishi's paintings are against unrealistic fantasy. 


Qi Baishi always pays attention to the characteristics of flowers, birds, insects, and fishes, and tries to figure out their spirit.

This painting embodies the good luck of official career and the meaning of knowledge of integrity and courage in the poem. It has reached the highest level of the perfect combination and perfect combination of poetry, calligraphy and painting pursued by traditional literati painters. It is a masterpiece and masterpiece of Qi Baishi's bird and bird paintings.


The ancients said that chickens have "five virtues": "A crown on the head is writing, and strength at the feet is martial arts; fighting against an enemy is courage; benevolence is when you meet friends; telling dawn on the day is faith."  

The hearty rooster is walking away. A moment from static to dynamic, the shape is vivid and amazing. It has a staring tail, straight neck and bulging feathers, and a towering red crown. It is a lifelike image of "majestic and high-spirited"  On the paper.



In traditional Chinese paintings, "chicken" and "ji" are homophonic, meaning good luck, good luck, etc. It is a good choice for hanging in the home or office. It means good luck, business is booming, etc., helping careers, prosperous fengshui, etc. 

Qi Baishi also wrote a Chinese calligraphy poem in this painting: Whether there are immortals in the clouds, whether the city is a group of gods.  Do you know honesty and honesty, and whether you can eat millet and Sichen.
