Xu Beihong Museum
The Xu Bei Hong Museum is dedicated to the revolutionary artist and Communist of the same name. During the early days of the Chinese Communist Party, Xu broke from the artistic community and become a party member, ensuring himself freedom to paint in future years. He is most recognized for his inked galloping horses, copies of which are frequently seen in government offices around Beijing. A gallery exhibits works of modern Chinese artists, and a small shop sells prints and art related literature.
