Classical appeal

Compilation of Classics in the Flourishing Age, an exhibition at the China Millennium Monument, is dedicated to an ambitious cultural chronicle that began in 2005. Zhejiang University in Hangzhou reached out to museums and institutions at home and abroad with collections of fine classical Chinese paintings to gather information and seek licensed images. Their hard work resulted in A Comprehensive Collection of Ancient Chinese Paintings, a 60-volume encyclopedic collection that catalogs over 12,400 classical pieces. These paintings on paper, silk or linen are housed in 263 museums, galleries or other institutions. The exhibition traces the book's long path from origin to completion, showing prints and digital images of the featured paintings in an immersive environment that resembles ancient studios. The exhibition ends on May 5.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays. 9A Fuxing Lu, Haidian district, Beijing.010-8418-7900.
