A history theme painting “Xi Zhongxun in Nanliang” is the highlight of the exhibition. The painting vividly depicts Xi Zhongxun, then chairman of the Soviet Government in Shaanxi-Gansu Border Revolutionary Base Area, launching new policies for running the area. The picture reminds many Chinese people Xi Zhongxun’s inaugural promise - “I, together with my colleagues, will spare no effort to ensure that all the people shall have work, enough food and happy life.”
The Guangdong Art Centennial Exhibition was held at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing from July 8 to 23, and will be held at Guangdong Museum of Art from August 4 to September 5, 2017.
