Chinese artist Wu Guanzhong passed away late Friday night at a hospital in Beijing at the age of 91, website artnews.cn reported Saturday.

The report did not give other details.

Wu, born in 1919, is a native of Yixing, Jiangsu Province, east China. In 1946, he went to France to study Western painting. In 1950 he returned to China to teach art.

Over the past decades, the artist has been engaged in integrating Chinese ink and wash with Western painting. He is widely recognized at home and abroad as the father of modern Chinese painting which is different from traditional painting, said the Xinhua news agency.

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong announced Friday that Wu Guanzhong had offered the city another donation of five ink paintings. It was his fourth donation to Hong Kong, Xinhua reported.
