The artist, Yan Pei-Ming, invited to present his work in the Chapelle de l’Oratoire, has chosen to emphasise the museum’s remarkable collection of Baroque paintings.
Born in Shanghai in 1960, Yan Pei-Ming moved to Dijon in 1980, where he attended the School of Fine Arts. Famous for his Mao portraits, characterized by large formats painted in grisaille, the artist is known for a gestural painting, expressing passionately the features of its models.
During his residency at the Villa Médicis in 1993, he created a monumental piece of art, inspired by a Chinese tale, The 108 Outlaws, depicting the people around him in Rome and all of those who came by to visit him.
