Abstract
Considering fading of western modern art theme and withering away of painting, this paper reviews thematic development of oil-painting since the founding of new China. From the theme era when theme goes first to the 1980s with the universal theme of introspection on Cultural Revolution, resorting to violence and life of educated youth and to the post-1990s when theme gradually fades, China's realism oil-painting's social function gradually fades. However, the author thinks that oil-painting's aesthetic function and social function cannot be neglected and they deserve attention from contemporary realist painters.
