Zhang Daqian (1899-1983) was an art master in China’s 20th century who had great influence at home and abroad. His marvelous life experience and excellent art have caught the world's attention.

A total of over 100 pieces or sets of artwork are on display, showcasing the comprehensive lifetime artistic journey of Zhang Daqian. The highlights are Zhang's replicas of the Dunhuang murals.
