Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 788
Jin Yan had been pampered since he was young and had never felt so awkward. Although he did not take on the family’s business, he was the most favored young master in the Jin family. There were naturally many people who wanted to please him and the Tang family.
Qiao Xi was just about to leave when she was suddenly stopped by a man. That man’s tone was mocking. “So what if you’re talented? Someone like you who doesn’t respect your elders will never succeed! Look at Miss Tang. She’s only been studying for half a month yet she can already participate in the oil painting exhibition. This is called talent. Can you compare to her?”
Before Qiao Xi could retort, that person showed a disdainful expression. “Some people are arrogant and conceited just because they have some talent. Those who are truly capable should be like Miss Tang, humble and polite. Even Miss Tang can acknowledge Mr. Qi Zhong as her master, so why must you refuse?”
Qiao Xi glanced coldly at that person, then turned to look at Tang Ruge. She saw Tang Ruge smile helplessly as if she was saying that what others said had nothing to do with her. She was innocent.
Tang Ruge did not say those words, but the reason why everyone said that was all because of Tang Ruge. It had to do with her.
At this moment, there was a commotion outside the door. Then, Tang Lingyun ran in excitedly. “Sister Ruge! Aunt! Madam Carter is here!”
The entire venue was in an uproar. They did not expect Madam Carter to personally attend. She was one of the founders of the international oil painting exhibition and was also an outstanding figure in the oil painting world. She was talented and had learned how to paint at the age of seven. Her first painting was famous throughout the oil painting world. After that, her journey was smooth-sailing. She won the highest honor in the world oil painting exhibition and founded several international oil painting exhibitions.
Carter no longer painted, but she would go to various parts of the world every year to select talented painters and personally mentor them. As a result, she had nurtured countless outstanding oil painters and was called the oil painting goddess.
Previously, Madam Carter did not even participate in the oil painting exhibition. However, she suddenly appeared this time. Everyone found it really strange. What exactly attracted Madam Carter to personally come?
Madam Tang was extremely excited. “Lingyun, you saw Madam Carter with your own eyes? What did she say?”
“She said that she’s here to see a lady in her 20s. She heard that the lady is here for the oil painting exhibition, so she came over,” Tang Lingyun said with a smile.
The moment that was said, everyone’s gazes landed on Tang Ruge. A young lady in her 20s?
Among the painters participating in the oil painting exhibition, only Han Yin and Han Ye’s ages were unknown. The others were all above 40 years old, while Tang Ruge was in her 20s.
“Is Madam Carter here to look for Ruge?” Jin Yan asked in disbelief.
Everyone immediately widened their eyes in shock. The man who stood up for Tang Ruge just now also reacted and hurriedly praised, “I heard that Madam Carter looks for painting geniuses all over the world every year. She must be here to choose an outstanding painter to nurture. The person she’s looking for is a lady in her 20s who’s participating in the exhibition. Who else could it be but Miss Tang? Congratulations, Miss Tang!”
The few respected professors all looked at Tang Ruge. It was indeed rare for someone in their 20s to participate in an oil painting exhibition, but it was even rarer to be appreciated by Madam Carter.
It had to be known that Madam Carter was not called the oil painting goddess for no reason. It was because the artists she nurtured eventually became internationally famous.
If Miss Tang was really chosen by Madam Carter, she might become the next international oil painting goddess.
Jin Yan looked at Tang Ruge in admiration and said excitedly, “Ruge, you’re really too awesome. Even Madam Carter came to see you personally.”
Everyone’s eyes were on Tang Ruge. She was stunned for a moment, then she was overjoyed and almost laughed out loud.
Madam Carter was actually here to look for her? This was definitely a great honor.
“Yes, Madam Carter must be here to look for my sister!” Tang Lingyun also jumped up excitedly. “At the door, I heard that Madam Carter was looking for a 20-year-old lady whose work is being displayed at the exhibition. I immediately thought of my sister. I boldly said that the person she was looking for must be my sister.”
“Sister, Madam Carter said that she’ll look for you after a short rest. Hurry up and get ready.”
Hearing Tang Lingyun’s words, Madam Tang, who had always been calm, could not help but laugh. She held Tang Ruge’s hand and said excitedly, “Lingyun is right. Quickly prepare yourself. You must perform well later.”
