More than 100 ink paintings of Qian Songyan (1899-1985), a classic Chinese painting master, are on display at the National Art Museum in Beijing.

The exhibition that marks the artist's 120th birth anniversary brings together 20 paintings from the museum's assemblage, 100 pieces provided by his family and 75 pieces of literature including verse manuscripts and sketches.

From the 1950s, Qian embarked on a long journey across eight provinces in central and southern China, drawing inspiration from the magnificent mountains and rivers he encountered.

The journey widened Qian's horizon, renewed his painting style and became the source of his inspiration for his landmark works such as "Paddy Fields in Changshu" and "Red Rocks."

Qian's works exerted a profound influence on Chinese paintings of the shanshui (mountain and water) genre in the mid-20th century.

The exhibition will last until Sunday.
