On View In Hong Kong, China’s Most Famous Painting

“Politics and art don’t always mix well, but the combination has yielded a rare chance for Hong Kong residents and visitors to see what is arguably China’s most famous painting. … (T)he Chinese government has sent 32 artworks here for an exhibition to mark the 10th anniversary of Britain’s return of Hong Kong to China on July 1, 1997. Among them is Zhang Zeduan’s ‘Along the River During the Qingming Festival,’ a scroll painted in the early 12th century.”
