Artworks from 52 of China's most influential 20th century artists such as Qi Baishi and Zhang Daqian are on display at the 2022 Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Cultural and Arts Festival, which is set to run until September 30. 

The art exhibition is sure to be a feast for lovers of Chinese art. A total of 66 paintings and calligraphy works created by big-name artists, including Xu Beihong, Li Keran and Wu Guanzhong, are on display. Many of these artists' works could easily sell for millions of dollars. 

These works not only hold artistic value but also possess cultural and historical importance as this group of 20th century creators used art to reflect the social changes and ideological development of their time. 

The Greater Bay Area festival, which kicked off on August 31, aims to integrate the cultural resources of 11 cities in the area to launch more than 100 cultural activities encompassing literature, film, dance, opera, acrobatics and more. 

The master art exhibition opened on Thursday at the Guangzhou Art Academy in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, and is scheduled to end on October 18.
