Beauty of Art and pictures for you


The National Museum of China

Beijing, China

The National Museum of China was established in February 2003 under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture by merging the Museum of Chinese History and the Chinese Revolution Museum, and resulted in a vast museum of both art and history as well as collection, research, archeology and cultural exchange.

The Founding Ceremony of China, Dong Xiwen painting, 1953, Oil on canvas

The painting replaces the founding ceremony of the People’s Republic of China, by Mao Zedong on October 1, 1949, in Tian’anmen Square, in a festive Chinese New Year’s metaphorical space with traditional bright colors of folk art.
The painting was modified several times as a result of purges at the top of the Communist Party and rehabilitations.
