Femininity-themed works from world-class artist Volti are currently on display at Sichuan Museum in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, to mark the 50th anniversary of Sino–French diplomatic relations. .

The exhibition, entitled "Women in Mediterranean Areas," features 100 works, including sculptures and drawings by the French artist. The Mediterranean style featured in the sculptures and drawings is giving Chinese art lovers a rare view into the world of French art.

Antoniucci Volti (1915 – 1989) is the famous contemporary French sculptor and painter, and the exhibition is the first in China to display 100 of his works. Taking femininity as their main theme and spanning various artistic periods, his works of art cover sculpture, drawing, chalk, tapestries and other types of work. The variety on display not only shows the distinctive artistic styles of Volti's work, but also reflects his creative talent.

The care and spirituality of women depicted through Volti's works reflect the more intimate side of the French artist as well as his appreciation of femininity.

This exhibition in Chengdu is just one stop of a 10-month exhibition tour for marking the 50th anniversary of Sino–French diplomatic relations. As one of a series of activities to commemorate the anniversary, the 10-month exhibition tour will cover many big cities in China, including Beijing, Tianjin, Chengdu, Wuhan and Shanghai.

The exhibition tour is co-sponsored by the Chinese Ministry of Culture's Cultural Exchange Center, Beijing World Art Museum, Tianjin Art Museum, Museum of Sichuan, Museum of Wuhan, China Art Palace, Volti Foundation and the Paris Volti Exhibition Planning Company.

The exhibition in Chengdu will run until November 9th.
