Arranged first by the Tianjin News Press, with subsequent preparations by the Tianjin Municipal Art Museum and Tianjin People's Fine Art Press, the exhibition "Calligraphy and Painting by the Eight Masters of Yangzhou� was held from 18 June to 15 July 1999 at the Tianjin Municipal Art Museum.  During the opening ceremony, the Tianjin People's Fine Art Press also inaugurated the first printing of Yangzhou huapai shuhua quan ji (Collected Works of the Yangzhou School).*

The over ninety paintings and album leaves in this exhibition are all masterpieces by the eight Yangzhou painters in the collection of the Tianjin Municipal Art Museum, including such representative works as Jin Nong's Ink Plums, Huang Shen's Inebriated Immortals, and Li Shan's Plum Blossom handscroll.  This is the comprehensive exhibition of works by most members of the Yangzhou School ever held in China.  Therefore, it offered a superb opportunity towards systematic and scientific study of the Yangzhou School.  Experts unanimously agreed that "This is the most comprehensive exhibition of works by most members of the Yangzhou School ever held in China.�

Experts who participated in the opening ceremony and the accompanying academic seminar included Xue Yongnian, Shan Guoqiang, Lang Shaojun, Xiao Yanyi, Xue Feng, Li Wancai, Xiao Ping, Ma Hongzeng, Feng Jicai, and Cao De.
