Introduction to the work:
Li jianchen, or Li Ruhua, born in Neihuang, Henan Province in 1900, studied at Beijing State Art School in 1920s, learning western painting from Slaw Kitil, a Czechic painter. He especially loves watercolor; besides, he learns Chinese painting from Chen Banding and Wang Mengbai. He went to London University to study western art in 1937. Two years later he came back and was devoted to the professional of painting and fine art education in the architecture departments of State Central University, Nanjing Institute of Technology and Southeast University.

Li Jianchen is one of the few watercolor painters who had directly studied British traditional watercolor. He combined Chinese art with British watercolor painting art and realistic painting art style and formed his own art style. During the Cultural Revolution, he could no longer paint what he likes. Instead, he created paintings of revolutionary themes such as "Steel Capital is Boiling". However, the painting shows his serious attitude and skills in handling space, actual condition,Sculpture, color, atmosphere and moisture to describe industrial field with watercolor paintings. He devoted most of his old days to Chinese painting, which is what most Chinese western art painters choose to do.
