A peace-connecting painting Taiwan hasn’t reunited with China’s mainland due to long-term political confrontation since 1949.
Similarly, a celebrated Chinese painting is also separated, that is Dwelling in Fuchun Mountain, accomplished by Huang Gongwang in 1350 during the Yuan Dynasty. Unfortunately, the landscape painting was severed by fire into two halves by one of its collectors centuries ago. The central part of the painting is lost forever. At present, half of it is conserved at Zhejiang Provincial Museum in Chinese Mainland while the other half, at Taipei Palace Museum in Taiwan.
People have the strong emotions for the reunion of the painting by peaceful means.
