Yangzhou Baguai Memorial Hall is located in the southeast of Yangzhou, which is separated by only one way. It was transformed from the Western temple where Jinnong, one of the eight Yangzhou Baguai lived in his later years. Here you can learn about the life and works of Yangzhou Bawei, which is suitable for tourists who like painting and calligraphy and are interested in cultural attractions. Yangzhou Baguai refers to a group of innovative painters in Yangzhou in the Qing Dynasty. They are represented by Zheng Xie (Zheng Banqiao), a bamboo painter, Jinnong, Luo Bian and others who are good at painting ghosts. According to various writings, there are at least fifteen painters before and after Baguai, so "8" can be regarded as a number of words, or as a number of words. The main building of Yangzhou Baguai Memorial is going north and south. At the South end, the gate enters the gate. The first thing you see is the big iron pot in the middle of the lawn. It has a history of more than 1500 years. Then is the Daxiong Temple of the Western Temple in Ming Dynasty, built with precious Nanmu. Daxiong Palace is now the main exhibition hall of the memorial hall, remember to look up, beams on the beautiful paintings are mostly relics of the Ming Dynasty. In the center of the hall is the eight strange statues of Yangzhou, surrounded by exhibitions. Pictures and texts introduce the life of the eight strange people and display their paintings and calligraphy, but most of them are imitations. Through the Daxiong Palace, behind the courtyard is a towering Ancient Ginkgo tree, nearly 800 years old. Walking straight ahead is the exhibition hall of Li Yaru's paintings and calligraphy. It usually displays the paintings of Li Yaru, the legendary legend of Eight Stranges, and sometimes holds temporary exhibitions. The left-hand turn is Jinnong's living room. According to the restoration of his abbot's room, the living room is in the middle, and the drawing room and bedroom are on both sides. At that time, the Western temple had declined. It can be seen that Jinnong's living room was very simple. Then eastbound is the part of the East Garden, decorated with rockeries and arranged in the shape of gardens in the south of the Yangtze River. Look at the pond "Crane Pond Glancing at Ice", named for Jinnong's poem "Crane Glancing at Ice on the Pond" expressing noble ambition. Travel southward to visit the bamboo spring Pavilion and Jinnong water wells in the pavilion, five generations of classical buildings, and finally return to the "Stele Gallery Collection" on the east side of the Daxiong Palace. Looking carefully in the stele gallery, we can find the famous Zheng Banqiao's calligraphy works "rare confusion". Walking 50 meters eastward along the alley outside the Eight Monsters Memorial Hall in Yangzhou, there is a fence to protect it. It is the place where the story happened in the Tang Dynasty "Nanke Taishou Zhuan" "Nanke Yimeng".
Zheng Xie's legend of bamboo and stone is not surprising. Gao Xiang paints Mei indifferent and strange, thin and charming. Jinnong first painted in Huagai, and Momei Yuehua was very talented. Li Yiwei is fighting hard and splashing ink and birds with his pen. The strange thing is that Huang Shen, the painter, painted the god, painted the beggar. Strange stubborn Li Fangying, old Mei Cangsong dazzling scenery. With both eyes, Wang Shishen is cautious and does not straighten up. Luo Binjian, a strange man, undertook the mission of Shumei School. The world's strange heroes are not strange, and they work hard to produce extraordinary talents.
In Yangzhou, there is also a saying that "Eight Eccentrics in Yangzhou" refers to the "Eight Ugly Eccentrics" in Yangzhou. Because Yangzhou Bawei's artistic style was not recognized by the so-called orthodox painting school at that time, and what they pursued was nature, that is, truth and reality, they moved some life-oriented and civilian-oriented works into their paintings and calligraphy, and even exposed the dark side of society. This kind of behavior damaged the interests of the rulers, saying that they were all unfashionable "Ugly Eight Stranges" in the painting circle, which gave Yangzhou Eight Stranges its name. Literary and artistic theorists finally classified "Eight Eccentrics in Yangzhou" into eight people. There is a local Memorial Hall in Yangzhou, where their statues stand.
