The artist Li Ruinian is relatively unknown despite his lifelong devotion to painting and education as a professor at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.

His achievements will be given comprehensive recognition at an exhibition called Everlasting Sincerity of Heart at CAFA's art museum.

The show, which runs through Jan 3, features dozens of his still lifes and landscapes, reflecting the training he received in France and Belgium.

Li particularly excelled at painting landscapes which were once praised as being lyrical.

One of Li's most iconic works, Thunderstorm, is on display in which he depicts a man struggling with heavy winds and rains.

He painted it in 1944 to indicate wartime agony, and encouraged people to back the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1931-45).
