One of my favorite places in all of Beijing is the National Art Museum. I only went two times, but because they change their exhibits around so drastically there were only a handful of paintings I saw both times. I would recommend any art lover who happens to be in Beijing to check this art museum out.
The first time I went they had an extensive exhibition on one of my favorite artists, Kathe Kollwitz. I loved that they featured a variety of Chinese and foreign art and artists, most from the past century. I was particularly enamored of the various prints I saw scattered across the museum. Below is a slideshow of some of my favorite pieces from the Gallery. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
