1949-1966

After the birth of New China, Mr. Qin Xuanfu embraced new life with great passion and his art career reached a brilliant new era. He followed firmly realism in his art creation. He worked hard to experience all aspects of life and to keep close relationships with broad masses. His paintings of this time reflect development in New China's industry, agriculture and the people who participated. "The Little Qindao" was painted during that period of time, and later was selected for the first art exhibition of the People's Republic of China held in 1953. His oil painting "National Day Celebration" created in 1956 is a magnificent scenery, a sea of people, at a grand occasion. Its imposing manner and holiday atmosphere created a tremendous impression that clearly demonstrated the strong emotion of the artist. There was no detailed figure portrait; yet, the emphasis on the color and lights combination created a warm and joyful holiday spirit. The oil painting "Picking the Lotus" was selected for the 2nd National Fine Arts Exhibition in 1956. In his oil painting "Shanghai Harbor", a busy harbor became a splendid, glorious place. The strokes are simple and free, but full of poetry. This painting was then selected and published in Chinese Oil Painting Collection in the Twentieth Century in 2001. Mr. Qin also created some other paintings of various ordinary workers.

1963, Mr. Qin went to Hangzhou and created a series of landscapes paintings in which he applied this style. At the end of 1963, Mr. Qin Xuanfu held his second exhibition of oil paintings in the gallery of Jiangsu Province. As for the exhibition, Mr. Song Zhengying, the well known artist at the time commented " Mr. Qin Xuanfu attempted to integrate the quality of expressing feelings in Chinese paintings into his own and tried to create art works with the quality and style of Chinese fine arts. This style is presented especially in his paintings created in Hangzhou in 1963."
