Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 793
Seeing that Qiao Xi had no intention of repenting, Jin Yan hurriedly rushed in front of Carter and said indignantly, “Madam Carter, I have to expose Miss Qiao in public. Her painting wasn’t completed by her!”
After that, he looked at Qiao Xi and said angrily, “You keep saying that you completed this painting alone, but I clearly saw the sketch of this painting in Senior Han Yin’s studio three years ago. These two paintings are almost identical. It’s just that your painting has been refined, while Senior Han Yin’s work was just a sketch then. Do you still dare to say that you completed it yourself?”
The entire venue was in an uproar as if a thunderclap had struck everyone’s hearts.
Tang Ruge was extremely excited, but she still pretended to be surprised. “Brother Jin Yan, you mean that Senior Han Yin helped Xi Xi complete this painting? Does that mean Xi Xi knows Senior Han Yin?”
Jin Yan frowned. “I admire Senior Han Yin very much. With my understanding of her, she won’t complete paintings for others. Moreover, she has never taken in an apprentice.”
“Then where did Xi Xi get this painting? After all, this is Senior Han Yin’s painting!” Tang Ruge sighed, then looked at Qiao Xi in disbelief. “Xi Xi, did Senior Han Yin give this painting to you? Of course, everyone will be happy that you brought Senior Han Yin’s painting to the exhibition, but you shouldn’t have registered it under your name!”
Jin Yan still had a serious expression. “Miss Qiao, I hope you can give everyone an explanation for what happened today. Why is Senior Han Yin’s painting in your hands? Moreover, your name is on it. You’re disrespecting your senior and the international oil painting exhibition!”
As soon as these words were spoken, everyone revealed disdainful gazes. What genius painter? Now, it seemed that it was all a joke! Qiao Xi was clearly lacking in strength, so she brought Senior Han Yin’s painting to the exhibition.
“Qiao Xi, why did you have to steal Senior Han Yin’s painting? She has so many fans in the oil painting world. Aren’t you afraid that someone will expose you?” Tang Lingyun instantly became confident and criticized loudly.
The two professors had long noticed that Qiao Xi’s painting style was very similar to Han Yin’s. They originally thought that Qiao Xi was deliberately imitating Han Yin’s style, but who knew that this painting was Han Yin’s? This young lady was actually so bold to bring her senior’s painting to the exhibition!
Tang Ruge pretended to be an elder and tried to persuade her. “Xi Xi, if you really want to participate in the art exhibition, study hard for a few years. After all, you’re still young and will have a chance to participate in an art exhibition. However, you shouldn’t have used Senior Han Yin’s paintings. If she finds out, she’ll definitely be unhappy.
“Previously, I advised you to acknowledge Mr. Qi Zhong as your master with me, but you looked down on him and rejected him in public. Now… Sigh!”
Tang Ruge shook her head helplessly as if she really felt pity for Qiao Xi.
“But you’ve offended Mr. Qi Zhong. And if Senior Cui Xian finds out that you stole someone else’s painting to attend the exhibition, he probably won’t speak up for you anymore. I heard that Senior Han Yin will also be attending the exhibition. What should we do then? Madam Carter, you should know Senior Han Yin, right? Can you help explain and get Xi Xi to apologize? She’s still young, so I hope Senior Han Yin can forgive her.”
Carter remained silent with a strange expression.
Qiao Xi did not even bother to look at Tang Ruge.
Tang Ruge’s expression froze as she continued to patiently persuade her. “Xi Xi, actually, I admire Senior Han Yin very much too. She’s my idol. I treat her as my lifelong goal. I can’t tolerate you stealing her paintings, so you have to apologize in public!”
When Qiao Xi heard these words, she finally raised her eyes and asked with a faint smile, “Miss Tang… you admire Han Yin a lot? You treat her as your lifelong goal?”
The corners of Tang Ruge’s mouth twitched slightly, then she sighed. “Xi Xi, I know you look down on me. My standard is indeed far inferior to Han Yin’s, but I also have the right to pursue my idol. I might not be able to reach her standard in my life, but I can work hard to get closer to her.
“Perhaps you admire Han Yin very much, but you shouldn’t use such a method to express your feelings. If you want to surpass Han Yin, you can rely on your own efforts. You shouldn’t steal her painting and use it to participate in the exhibition!”
Qiao Xi’s beautiful eyes shifted as she blinked. “I really didn’t expect this! So, Miss Tang, you’re also a fan of Han Yin. Then what do you think I should do?”
