The National Art Museum of China is displaying more than 100 ink-and-water paintings depicting Xinjiang's magnificent landscapes and vibrant ethnic customs.
The exhibition, The Beauty of Tianshan Mountain, shows how traditional ink painting developed in the autonomous region since 1949, when artists highlighted the rich cultural legacy of Xinjiang's many ethnic groups in artistic exploration.
Many participating artists are the first generation of college graduates who came to Xinjiang in the 1950s and devoted their life to art development and education there.
The exhibition has several paintings from the museum's permanent collection, with works by celebrated artists such as Huang Zhou and Ye Qianyu.
The exhibition lasts until Friday, and will travel to Henan, Hubei and Guangdong provinces.
