About the artwork
In this painting titled "Contemplation", Dou Rong Jun depicts a young man, captivated by something outside the painting, staring at it, caught in a thoughtful observation. Laid on the ground, his body is bended, mirroring the torsion and twists of his tangled mind. A tension is palpable through the curves of his body, but the melodious harmony of the painting masks the tension to create a delicate composition. The artist achieves the goal of catching thoughts by very sensible brushstrokes highly appropriate to the expression of contemplation.
