The wide use of digital gadgets has made landscape an easy subject of creation, even though, painters keep exploring the motif.

For oil painter Zhang Shaoxia, views at the golf course he visits have become the recurring theme of his work for years. And he is now showing dozens of these landscapes at the art museum of Nanjing University of the Arts, in Jiangsu province, where he once taught art history and published books about it.

The exhibition shows Zhang's persistence with painting, which seems much more difficult in a digital age than it used to be, as much as when he lectured and wrote while at university.

Li Xiaoshan, director of the art museum, says Zhang's works show that landscapes, no matter where they are, command different perspectives and emotions.

Zhang has donated some of the paintings on show to his alma mater. The exhibition is through to Nov 27.
