More than 70 master pieces from the great Chinese artist Li Keran are on display at a new exhibition at the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) that opened Thursday. The ongoing exhibition offers visitors a chance to explore the master's career from the 1940s to the 1980s over four chapters that introduce everything from his landscape paintings to portraits. 

Although trained in Western oil painting, Li is known around the world for his traditional literati paintings with influences from Qi Baishi and Huang Binhong, two renowned masters in Chinese painting.

According to Wu Weishan, the president of NAMOC, the museum has 20 of Li's "very precious" works and that the exhibition is a rare chance to see so many works altogether in the same place. 

The exhibition is set to run until September 21.
