Late writer, essayist and dramatist Wang Zengqi once said, "My paintings, they are like a cloud over a hill."

Wang is often hailed as a "lyric humanistic" who inherited the spirit of Chinese scholar-artists, being well-cultivated in literature, calligraphy and ink paintings. His works are exuberant with delight, wit and serenity.

Clouds over the Hill, an exhibition now on at Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou, will run until Sept 25 and commemorates the centennial of Wang's birth through the display of nearly 100 paintings and calligraphic works from Wang's oeuvre.

Wang once said, "Painting classic Chinese paintings brings such a fun that, one can add poems on the painting to express emotions and feelings, and also to complain."

Visitors to the exhibition are offered an insight into Wang's world of culture, his understanding of the intimate relationship between Chinese literature and fine arts and his philosophical look on life.
