The first photographs of nude art in China (15 rare images)

Nude art in China: Artistic nude and human body model was introduced in China about a century ago by Chinese students who studied abroad and later returned bringing with them not only foreign ideologies and sciences but also something more.

The first school of fine arts in modern China was inaugurated in 1912 by the great painter Liu Haisu with Wu Shiguang and Zhang Yunguang in Shanghai (Shanghai Academy of Chinese Painting, the former Shanghai School of Fine Arts).

Liu Haisu, a pioneer of Chinese modern painting who introduced Cézanne and Millet, was soon labeled as a traitor.
