Yang Lizhou and Wang Yingchun, both born in the 1940s, were once known as the "golden couple" of China's painting scene, but during the Cultural Revolution, they were labeled as subversives and fell from the limelight. Today, however, they pursue their own styles freely and have returned to their former glory.
About 40 pieces by Wang and Yang, in both Indian ink and color, will be on display April 15-May 12 at the "Suiboku Sekai (The World of Indian Ink)" exhibition at the art museum of the Nitchu Yuko Kaikan (Japan-China Friendship Center).
The center, at 1-5-3 Koraku, Bunkyo-ku, is a few minutes' walk from the C3 Exit of Korakuen Station of the Oedo subway line. Open 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; closed Mondays.
