Road to Peak, a series exhibition running until Dec 7 at the Art News of China gallery in Beijing, puts a spotlight on different generations of painters working in the style of xiey i(presenting the spirit) of classical Chinese painting. The first show, now underway, displays works by those in the 1980s and '70s.
