Often soft and muted, the earthy colors are reminiscent of the natural world.

Tribute to 'Kunqu Opera Saint'

The memorial hall to remember Yu Sulu (1847-1930), known as the "Kunqu Opera Saint," is open to the public in Cangcheng, a historic protection zone in Songjiang. The hall was transformed from an ancient architecture once owned by a local landlord during the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The two-story, brick-and-wood house offers visitors a quick glimpse of Yu's art life.
