With the traditional spring festival approaching, the National Art Museum of China has a specially planned exhibition entitled City•Countryside——a Nomination Exhibition for Chinese Paintings of the National Art Museum of China (2012) as a new year exhibition that establishes the brand image of the academic nomination exhibition of the National Art Museum of China. This improves the contemporary development of Chinese paintings, encourages national painters to pay attention to times and life, while acting as a catalyst for the emergence of Chinese paintings that stand for the spirit of the 21st century, and enrich the artwork collections of our country. The exhibition nominates 60 contemporary Chinese painters in total, each painter provides 3-5 pieces of artwork and the total exhibition exhibits about 220 pieces. Some of the painters take the modern city as their theme, and depict various states of the city with vivid paintings, while others take the countryside as their subject and present the amorous feelings of villages. No matter if it is the city or the countryside, they are using feelings of being close to reality and bright paintings to express their deep humanistic concern.
