Mountain magic

Liu Haisu, one of 20th-century China's greatest artists, produced a stunning body of work depicting various landscapes of Huangshan Mountain in East China's Anhui province. Between 1918 and 1988, Liu paid 10 visits to Huangshan, one of the country's "five famous mountains". He fell deeply in love with the mountain, and some of his paintings of its breathtaking scenery have become monumental works in Chinese art history. Clouds Under Brushes, an exhibition running at the Liu Haisu Art Museum in Shanghai until Feb 28, pays homage to Liu's deep emotional attachment to Huangshan. On show are sketches and paintings of the mountain from the museum's collection. It's a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Liu's birth. Also on display are photos, videos and articles reflecting Liu's take on art, life and the world that convey his perspectives of Huangshan's changing scenery.

9 am-5 pm, Tuesday-Sunday. 1609 Yan'an Xi Lu, Changning district, Shanghai. 021-6270-1018.
