Yan'an attachment

Among the earliest donations that the National Art Museum of China received when opening in 1963 were dozens of woodcuts made by print artists while living in Yan'an, Shaanxi province, a stronghold of the country's communist course. Attachment to Yan'an, an exhibition now on at the National Art Museum, shows artworks created in Yan'an some eight decades ago, when people were motivated to fight imperialism and feudalism. The show is also a celebration of the "Yan'an spirit" that combines determination, commitment and optimism about the communist course. Works on show fall into two categories. One section displays woodcuts, traditional nianhua, or New Year paintings, and photos by artists, including Gu Yuan, Wu Yinxian and Liu Xian, whose output documents the communist history and social development in Yan'an in the 1940s. The second section gathers paintings by Zhao Wangyun, Zhong Han and Jin Shangyi, among others, created after the founding of New China in 1949 and hailing Yan'an's historic role. The exhibition ends on July 12.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays. 1 Wusi Dajie, Dongcheng district, Beijing. 010-6400-1476.
