In a notable book comprising his complete texts, Xunzi, the philosopher and thinker who lived more than 2,000 years ago, wrote if one persisted with piling up earth, a mountain would be built in the end, emphasizing the importance of one's unyielding efforts to achieve success. This spirit of diligence was behind the accomplishments of Li Jiazhen (1917-2008) in oil painting. The Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou, the provincial capital, is showing Li's oil works, prints, sketches, watercolors and manuscripts to navigate the artist's career spanning several decades. Li translated the poetic atmosphere and a semi-figurative, semi-abstract style of Chinese painting into his works. The exhibition runs through to May 7.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays.138 Nanshan Road, Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. 0571-8707-8700.
