Luo Zhongli. The chinese soul of Dabashan. 9.9 - 8.10 1995 is a hardcover publication, that appeared as a companion volume / catalogue with an exhibition about the work of Luo Zhongli at the Royal Art and History Museum in Bruxelles, Belgium. The text is printed in three language versions, English, French and Dutch.

Luo Zhongli (罗中立) was born in Sichuan Province, China, in 1948. When he first showed his painting "My Father" in the early 1980s, the painter was severely criticized. Chinese authorities condemned the hyper-realistic painting as a criticism of Chinese politics, assuming the painting suggested that people in China continued to live in deep poverty and no progress was made. The more than life-size oil painting "My Father" is now considered a classic masterpiece of Chinese art, and is a standard piece of practise for art students to copy as part of their training in art academies in China.

Luo Zhongli (罗中立) developed to a more dream-like style, depicting farmer's life in China in a unique style. Oil painting has but a relatively short history in China. The catalogue also contains samples of Luo Zhongli (罗中立) ' photography. Currently, Luo Zhongli (罗中立) is recognized as one of China's famous contemporary artists, while he serves as a teacher and president at the prestigious Sichuan Fina Arts Institute. ( )
