Located at the mouth of the Yangtze River and known as the "golden coastline" of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, Taicang is about a one-hour drive from Suzhou, a city renowned for its gardens and art.

Jin Huihui, director of the Taicang Art Museum, says its establishment can better satisfy people's growing demand for cultural activities in small cities. During the Spring Festival holiday in late January, more than 2,000 visitors poured into the art museum every day, says Jin.

Apart from the Loudong school and masterpieces from the 20th century, the museum's opening show also displays 80 artworks made by contemporary Chinese artists and 50 paintings by five German painters.

"Many visitors said it's a rare chance to see such a comprehensive show of Chinese art and also art from Germany in a small city," Jin says.

The show will last until April 15.
