Starbucks Announced

Starbucks Announces

“Starbucks announced that it plans to double the number of its stores in China from more than 2,300 to 5,000 by 2021. Starbucks says that it will open more than one new store a day for the next five years.” This inscription is based on a news story.

This painting by Lu Kesi is based on an original by Huang Binhong (1865-1955). The featured image shows the painting before it’s had a backing sheet applied, so wrinkles create shadows that are not part of the finished painting. A better version will be posted once it gets backed.

This is an example of copying a painting in order to learn the artist’s style, then updating it. Picasso once said “There’s nothing new in art.”
