In 1942, Yang Lizhou was born in a farmer's family in Linyi County, Shanxi Province. Because of poverty and illness, his mother was killed by cecumitis when she was one year old. Later, adults told him that his mother held him in her arms and drank her milk for the last time before she left. At the age of 5, Yang Lizhou passed on to his aunt and parents and went to Lanzhou from his hometown in Shanxi. The adoptive parents had hoped that Yang Lizhou would learn medicine and have a bowl of rice even if he was in disorder. Unexpectedly, he fell in love with painting and wrote with his senior painters. I came across a cultural man from Shanxi province and taught him to practice calligraphy. Later, Wang Xi supported Northwest China after graduation from Nanyi and taught at Huimin Middle School. Yang Lizhou studied painting with him, painting still life and oil painting, and then came into contact with Western painting. Yang Guoguang, Pan Zipei and other senior painters took the lead in the entrance examination to the attached high school of Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts, and took Yang Lizhou along the way.
In 1957, 15-year-old Yang Lizhou came to Xi'an alone to take the exam. At the same time, Wang Yingchun, a female fellow countrywoman from Shanxi Province, was also admitted. In the class of 40 students, they are the youngest and the most diligent. In the third academic year, the school is divided into specialties. He and Wang Yingchun agreed to learn one set of courses and tackle key problems separately. Yang chose oil painting and sculpture, while Wang chose Chinese painting and sculpture. In order to make concerted efforts to draw big paintings and strive to learn more skills.
"Four Women's Pictures" reflects the situation that working women leave pottery and Kangtou and go to the field and production line. The protagonists in the works all have life prototypes. Wang Yingchun is good at capturing inspiration, brave and knowledgeable, full of creative passion. "Four Women's Pictures" was originated by her, but she was unable to prepare for it. Yang Lizhou volunteered to help her complete the work. It was published by Shaanxi Pictorial in 1959. This is the first time that they cooperate and publish their works. From this, they come together and make a lifelong marriage.
In 1966, they graduated and assigned to Beijing, but they left their jobs for some reason. They returned to Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, and went to work in a printing factory. In 1970, Yang Lizhou and Wang Yingchun jointly created the oil painting "Pingxing Guandajie", which was their first thematic creation after graduation from Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts. At that time, Yang Lizhou and his lover Wang Yingchun were specially created.
Experience life, collect materials along the Great Wall of North Shanxi, until the works come out, lasted for a year. "Pingxing Guandajie" depicts the heroic groups in the typical environment in a realistic way. By 1972, this pair of "golden partners" who never put down their brushes had created the oil painting "The Way of Civil and Martial Arts, One Relax One by One". Later, he created the Chinese painting "More than Digging Mountain". They are very familiar with Chen Yonggui. They painted him many years ago and asked him to sign his name. Chen said with a smile that I had just learned to write the three words "Chen Yonggui" these two days, and now I use them. They have been to Dazhai many times to experience life, to assist the Dazhai Exhibition Hall to carry out its work, and Chen Yonggui to participate in labor, immersion, painting when the mood can not wait, working in the field during the day, after finishing the night to draw sketches.
