Jin Shangyi (靳尚谊) entered Peking State Art College at the age of 15 in 1949. The college was renamed Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1950 and he received professional training and guidance by several painting masters. In 1955, Jin went to former Soviet Union to continue his study of oil painting and graduated with excellent performance.
As new China's first generation of oil painters, Jin is known for his works of revolutionary and history subjects. His masterpieces such as "Ascending Peak Mushitago", "Seeing Off", "Our Friends are All Over the World", "The December Meeting" and "The Long March" demonstrate his artistic talents and ambition to reflect realities with painting.
