During the Ink Asia 2017 art fair at the Hong Kong Convention Centre, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston made a decision to include Xue Song’s painting, Spring Colors, 2013, as part of the Museum’s permanent collection, through the help of a generous donor. The MFA has an extensive collection of Chinese art, ranging from the classical master Shen Zhou, to contemporary artists including Liu Xiaodong and Zhan Wang. Wu Tung Senior Curator of Chinese Art, Nancy Berliner commented that the lines of Xue Song’s landscapes are reminiscent of the brushwork of the Ming Dynasty master Shen Zhou.
