Editor’s note: Every year when March and April arrives, Guangzhou is transformed into a vast sea of flowers, filled with different types of blossom. For those who love the great outdoors, enjoying spring flowers is a great choice; but for the less outdoorsy, the following ten exhibitions could be right up your street.

Guangdong Museum presents a superb selection of works by Alphonse Mucha and other artists. These artworks were specially selected from the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. This is the first time Mucha’s works have been exhibited in China. These artworks testify to the ideals, dreams and visions of the early 20th Century that molded the art and culture of modern Europe.
