The National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) is displaying the "Beauty in Landscape" exhibition until February 24th. During the exhibition, 300 pieces of landscape art are showed to the public. These works show the beautiful natural scenery of the nation, as well as the rich spiritual scenery of the Chinese artists, as gifts to the masses of people in the Spring Festival.
NAMOC has collected these art works since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, including traditional Chinese painting, oil painting, prints, watercolors and sculpture showing the nation's natural scenery. Works of well known artists such as Qi Baishi, Lin Fengmian, Huang Binhong, Liu Haisu, Li Keran and Fu Baoshi are on display.
NAMOC is one of the largest art museums in China, which is funded by the Ministry of Culture in 1958 with a total land area of 30,000 square meters. The permanent collection includes both ancient and contemporary Chinese artworks as well as notable Western artworks. The main mission of the museum is to serve as a national level art museum dedicated to displaying, collecting and researching the modern and contemporary artistic works of China.
