Chang'e, the goddess of moon in Chinese legend, is one of the most famous beauties in China. People give mooncakes in her honor and tell descendants the story about how she flew to the moon. As the symbol of love and beauty, Chang'e is an eternal theme for Chinese painters. As the Mid-Autumn Festival approaches, let's check out some stunning Chinese paintings which depict the same Chang'e in different styles.

This painting of Chang'e by Yan Jiyuan sold for 9,968,000 yuan ($1,495,200) at the Chongqing Shangwenzhai 2011 autumn auctions. [Photo/artron.net]
