Chang Jin (b. 1951), well known as a Neo-Traditionalist landscape artist from People's Republic of China, first exhibited in The Guggenheim Museum in New York as part of the modern section of the "China: 5,000 Years" Exhibit in 1998. 

"Chang Jin has been engaged over the past fifteen years in absorbing the artistic traditions of his adopted home of Nanjing in order to develop beautifully controlled, pale brushwork and tranquil imagery," (according to editors, Julia F. Andrews and Kuiyi Shen at The Ohio State University, as quoted in the 1998 book of The Guggenheim Museum, A Century in Crisis: Modernity and Tradition in the Art of Twentieth-Century China.)

In the past ten years, Mr. Chang Jin's style evolved into the creation of misty hued and barely visible outline of nude women among poetic, landscape backgrounds or beautifully detailed flowers. "His slender lined women remind one of the Matisse strokes.  However, his works centered on the clever use of pastel colors, complemented by the soft lines of the women..." as stated by respected Mr. Lang Shaojun, a Chinese Art Critic in 1992.
