The When Watercolor Encounters Chinese Ink exhibition shows more than 80 watercolor and ink paintings by Song Yuelin from Jiangxi province, who uses a highly expressionist style through two mediums of the East and West.

The show, running at the National Art Museum of China until Dec 20, reviews the evolution of Song, a leading figure in Jiangxi's art circles, from a realistic style to an abstract, spiritual style over a course of four decades.

The exhibition gathers those paintings which garnered Song much attention in the 1880s and '90s, such as Well and Women, as well as watercolors which won him prizes at national competitions and shows.

The breathtaking Lushan Mountain in Jiangxi is a recurring subject in Song's works, but he also depicts family life to convey emotional, intimate feelings.
