Chinese artists have sought to blend a Chinese temperament into their oil paintings since the genre arrived in the country a century ago.

They have tried to develop a distinctive style that reflects Chinese aesthetics. And one of the approaches they have taken is the freehand style of xieyi, which literally means drawing the spirits.

Inheritance of Cultural Spirit, an ongoing exhibition at the National Art Museum of China, looks at various attempts by painters to develop the xieyi style.
