An exhibition featuring Chinese master painter Liu Haisu's 101 works was unveiled at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing on Nov 3.

Born in 1896 in Jiangsu province, Liu devoted himself to creating Chinese-style oil paintings and traditional ink paintings.

The artist had a strong emotional attachment to Huangshan Mountain and went there 10 times. 

"The mountain is my favorite place. Its great view has been imprinted in my mind deeply. Even I am old, when I think of it, I can touch its vigor and beauty," the artist once said.

In his paintings, large clouds and rocks portray the colorful and splendid scenery of Huangshan Mountain. Liu passed away in 1994. When he was young, he toured Europe and had a special interest in impressionism and fauvism.

The exhibition will run until Nov 26.
