Step into the tranquil West Lake in Hangzhou, where the brush strokes of Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) artist Hua Yan (1682-1756) evoke the essence of spring. Gentle breezes caress the willows beside the Broken Bridge!

With spring in full bloom, it’s a perfect time for an outdoor excursion to mark the upcoming Qingming Festival. Go outside, soak in the fresh air and let the splendor of the season unfold before your eyes! Collection: Fujian Museum.
