19th century European tapestry arts exhibit in Beijing
Adjust font size:

The exhibition's pride of place was given to Albert Moore's 1868 work "A Quartet: A Painter's Tribute to the Art of Music". Moore was one of the leading painters of the Aesthetic Movement. The relationship of art and music was particularly important to Moore, who was a keen amateur musician.

In the painting, four male figures clad in classical drapery and with trance-like expressions play the instruments of a modern string quartet. Their listeners are three maidens clad in Greek costumes.

The show officially opens to the public on March 28. Mr. Perez Simon will come to Beijing in person to unveil his exhibition. The exhibits will stay in Beijing for three months. Then, they will travel three other Chinese cities for further showings.

The exhibit represents an eclectic group of styles, subjects and approaches to art.(Photo: CCTV)
