Silk Road Rainbow -- Donated Works Exhibition in Memory of 120th Anniversary of Han Leran's Birth is on the show at National Art Museum of China. 



Han Leran (1898-1947) was one of the artists who combined revolutionary ideals with artistic creation most closely in the first half of the 20th century. Han Leran's artistic creation embodied a strong sense of history and realism, representing the progressive artistic trend in the first half of the 20th century. As a revolutionary, Han joined the Communist Party of China in 1923. He devoted his life to the War of Resistance Against Japan and propaganda activities in various forms. He was endorsed as a martyr after the founding of the People's Republic of China.

There are not many works handed down by Mr. Han Leran. After several tosses and turns, his family donated 135 works to NAMOC in 1963. The works, in the categories of oil painting, watercolor and sketch, were created during his inspection tour of West China. That period was the peak of Han's artistic creation and the archaeological study of Silk Road.

This year marks the 120th anniversary of Han Leran's birth. National Art Museum of China hopes to hold a commemorative exhibition to remember his important contribution to the culture of the Chinese nation and the liberation of the Chinese nation.
