China Art Gallery

The China Art Gallery, one of the 10 major construction projects carried out in Beijing in 1959, is situated at the eastern end of May 4th Road. The high multi-eaved roof section of the central portion of the building is balanced on both sides by long corridors. The roofs of these structures and the eaves of the wings of the building are embellished with yellow glazed tiles in traditional Chinese style. The creamy brick walls blends harmoniously with the colorful glazed tile decorations on the pillars, giving the entire fagade a tasteful appearance. The 14 exhibition halls have a total floor space of more than 6,000 square meters. There are, in addition, studios where artists do their own creative works or inspect the works of other artists past and present. The gallery frequently holds exhibitions of Chinese and foreign art. There is also a sales department, which deals n folk art, reproductions, art posters and postcards.
