Enlarged 3 times the 27 billion dong picture of the Chinese artist, netizens are excited: The mistake is too small for children to see!

Qi Baishi (1864 – 1957) is the name associated with the masterpieces in modern Chinese painting. Collectors often spend half their eyes lining up to register for auction of his work.

The artist surnamed Qi is also the first Chinese person to enter the author’s club with a price tag of 100 million USD ($100 Million Club), when his ink painting series “Twelve Landscapes” sold for $140.8 million in 2017.

Although he has received many compliments for his liberal art style, emphasizing the spirit of the sketched subject, but not always the works of Qi Bach Thach are well received by the public.

In 2018, Qi Baishi’s favorite painting “Cup oxen” (Pulling the buffalo) was auctioned at the autumn auction of Poly Beijing, earning a staggering amount – 7.65 million yuan. (equivalent to more than 27 billion VND).

The special thing is that when “Cat oxen” covered the newspapers, the picture did not receive many compliments, but on the contrary, viewers said that when they zoomed in about 3 times, they realized a series of serious mistakes. the author’s problem. Many mistakes in the picture are also rated as “kids also recognize”!

The buffalo herder and the buffalo have no shadow

Qi Bach Thach once shared that he will do this painting when he remembers his hometown in the countryside in Hunan, where he used to have a childhood associated with the field. But many observant people can immediately recognize an unusual point in the picture, that is, the buffalo and this farmer have no reflection in the water.

This is considered a basic mistake in painting that many people find it difficult to understand. Why would a meticulous person, raising pigeons for half a year just to learn to draw pigeons like Qi Bach Thach, forget this?

Some experts said that Qi Bach Thach’s paintings wanted to follow a free style, not paying much attention to details, so he actively reduced the reflection to focus on expressing homesickness. But not many people are convinced by this statement!

In fact, this “loophole” was once discovered by a student of Te Bach Thach, female painter Quach Tu Nghi. To correct the error, Tu Nghi copied a picture exactly like his teacher’s and then added a blurry reflection on the calm water.

The “irrational” posture of the farmer

Looking closely at the farmer and the buffalo in the picture, many people think that this character’s harrowing posture is absurd. Experienced farmers will put both hands at the ends of the fork or a hand to hold the claw, one hand to swing the whip to command the buffalo.

However, Qi Bach Thach drew a farmer with both hands in the middle of the harrow, showing that this person is really not good at farming.

In addition, during harrowing, the actual harrow gear cannot be exposed, but must be submerged under the water. The gear in the picture is too obvious on the water, the gear position is also close to the point of crashing into the buffalo’s leg, while the harrow teeth and the buffalo always keep a safe distance in reality.

These loopholes make many people wonder if the author has never seen the scene of the buffalo walking indiscriminately? Many Weibo users believe that Qi Bai Shi has shown inexperience, lack of observation in this painting and that the work is not worthy of the price of 7.64 million yuan.

Up to now, after nearly 3 years of “Cow of Bulls” being auctioned by Poly Beijing, many experts still assert that every detail in the painting carries Qi Bach Thach’s own intentions.

But is “The Cowboy” just like “the emperor’s new clothes”, using the author’s reputation to cover the loopholes and flaws of the work itself? The answer lies in each person’s perspective!
