Women's special

China Daily| Updated: March 29, 2022 L M S


Zhejiang Provincial Museum launched a three-year virtual exhibition, Beauties in Paintings, on Women's Day last year, bringing together digital images of classical Chinese paintings on women that are in the collection of various cultural institutions. 

It won wide acclaim and the museum recently opened an in-person show on the same theme, allowing viewers a detailed look at some centuries-old ink paintings in its collection. 

Divided into three sections, it shows the daily lives and the spiritual world of well-off women in ancient China. The first introduces their hair styles, dresses, makeup and accessories to show fashion trends at the time. The second places the audience in the living spaces of women who were largely confined indoors and relied heavily on leisure activities to fill their time. The third section zooms in on the family life and cultural activities of women, showing paintings created by female artists themselves. 

The exhibition runs through May 8.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays. 25 Gushan Lu, Hangzhou. 0571-8601-3085/8796-0505.
