 Kingman was keenly interested in landscape painting from an early age.  In Hong Kong,where Kingman completed his schooling, teachers at that time customarily assigned students a formal “school name.”  His interest was so keen, infact, that he was named after it.  The young boy who had been called DongMoy Shu became Dong Kingman.  The name Kingman was selected for its two 2parts, “king” and “man”; Cantonese for “scenery” and “composition.” As Kingman developed as a painter, his works were often compared to 3 paintings by Chinese landscape artists dating back to CE 960, a time when a strong tradition of landscape painting emerged in Chinese art.  Kingman, however, 4vacated from that tradition in a number of ways, most notably in that he chose to focus not on natural landscape, such as mountains and rivers, but on cities.

6 His fine brush work conveys detailed street-levelactivity: a peanut vendor pushing his cart on the sidewalk, a pigeon pecking for crumbs around a fire hydrant, an old man tending to a baby outside a door way. His broader brushstrokes and sponge-painted shapes create majestic city skylines, with skyscrapers towering in the background, bridges connecting neighborhoods on either side of a river, and enormous ships maneuvering out of a busy harbor. To art critics and fans alike, these city scenes represent the innovative spirit of twentieth-century urban Modernism.
考点6. Which choice most effectively established the main topic of the paragraph?
A. Kingman is considered a pioneer of the California Style school of painting.
B. Although cities were his main subject, Kingman did occasionally paint natural landscapes.
C. In his urban landscapes, Kingman capture the vibrancy of crowed cities.
D. In 1929 Kingman moved to Oakland, California, where he attended the Fox Art School.
此题考查对段落主旨的总结，此段主要介绍Kingman笔下的urban landscapes，从street-level activity、majestic city skylines的角度具体描述Kingman对城市的刻画，C选项符合要求。A选项：是对Kingman的绘画风格的介绍，与本段对城市景象的描述无关;B选项的natural landscapes，直接排除;D选项，无关。
修辞部分 -- Organization
考点5. For the sake of cohesion of this paragraph, sentence 3 should be placed
A. where it is now.
B. before sentence 1.
C. after sentence 1.
D. after sentence 4.
此题考查Sentence 3的具体位置，从此段看，Sentence 1：Kingman was keenly interested in landscape painting from an early age. 关键词：keenly、interested。Sentence3：His interest was so keen，与Sentence1衔接非常紧密，C选项正确。A选项：扰乱了Sentence2(描述school names)与sentence 4(表明Dong Kingman是Dong Moy Shu的school name)的联系;B选项错误，根据句意，Sentence 3在Sentence 1后面;D选项：扰乱了Sentence 4(Dong Moy Shu的school name是Dong Kingman)与Sentence 5(解释Dong Kingman这个名字的两部分意思)的紧密关系。
