The exhibition "Xu Beihong - A Master and His Masters" will run through August 3 in Beijing as part of the celebration marking the 50th anniversary of Sino-French ties.
123 paintings by Chinese art master Xu Beihong and art masters from the National School of Fine Arts in Paris are on display. Among them, works by Xu Beihong's four French mentors when Xu was studying at the academy are now on display for the first time in China.
Through the comparisons between Xu and his mentors' paintings, we can see the influence they had on the Chinese painter.
