The development of Chinese painting mainly took two paths. The first is represented by Wu Chang- shuo, Chen Shizeng, Qi Baishi, Huang Binhong and Pan Tianshou who found strength from the tradition of Chinese painting, especially from the tradition of literati painting, combined with modern feelings, and then went on to make new breakthroughs based on traditional Chinese painting to innovate Chinese painting and move it forward. The second path is represented by Xu Beihong, Lin Fengmian, Liu Haisu, Gao Jianfu and Fang Rending who advocated blending Chinese and Western influences, by taking Western painting techniques and ideas for reference in order to inject new blood into Chinese painting.
