Jilin Provincial Museum exhibits ancient calligraphy and painting works

As this year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, the Jilin Provincial Museum will hold five exhibitions recently to promote China's traditional culture, revolutionary culture and socialist culture.  

One of the exhibitions opened on August 20, which focused on ancient calligraphy and painting. The exhibition will last until October 30.

Twenty-five masterpieces collected by the museum which were passed down from the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties went on show.

It is worth noting that the exhibition marks the first time that some of the works were exhibited in whole in sixteen years, including a piece of work by famous Song Dynasty calligrapher and painter Su Shi.

In addition, the museum has invited Gao Yang, head of Jilin University's fine art department, Su Xianshuang, head of Changchun Normal University's calligraphy department, and Zhang Lei, a staff member of Jilin Provincial Museum's exhibition department, to give lectures on ancient calligraphy and painting.
