Of the 110,000 artworks in the collection of the National Art Museum of China, nearly 30 percent were donated by artists, their families and private collectors with the hope of benefiting more and more members of the public.

To mark their generous contributions to enriching the national art collection, the National Art Museum will open a special exhibition, A Tribute to Donors, on Jan 19. The show will present a selection of more than 850 works from the donations it has received, from as early as 1961 and throughout 2019.

The exhibition through March 28 is meant to offer visitors a visual treat during Chinese New Year celebrations.

Works on show will include classic Chinese ink paintings and calligraphy, oil works, lithographs, sculptures and photographs.

The exhibition will offer a glimpse of the brilliance of ancient Chinese art, trace the evolution of Chinese art in the 20th century and review the cultural exchanges between China and the world.
