Permanent exhibitions of Hunan culture

From May 18, 2019
Location: Hunan Museum, Changsha city, Hunan province

The exhibitions of Hunan culture encompass the local culture of Guqin (a plucked seven-string Chinese zither-like musical instrument), ceramics, and paintings. As an organic whole, they complement each other and represent the elegant life and fine taste of people in Hunan.

The exhibition of Guqin culture in Hunan, focusing on the history of the instrument, shows people’s deep affection for it as well as its influence on Hunan culture from different perspectives.

The exhibition of famous Chinese painter Qi Baishi’s paintings covers the master's creations from the early to late periods of his career, striving to give a complete picture of the evolution of his painting styles and to convey his unique artistic self-confidence and inherent sense of innovation. As a Hunan native, Qi created artworks that are intrinsically connected with local culture.
