Wu Yongnian, an artist from northwest China's Shaanxi Province, opened an exhibition entitled Return to Simplicity at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing on May 12.

Wu, 83, graduated from the Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts with a bachelor degree in 1954. He chose to return to his hometown and work for Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts after he received his master degree in the major of oil painting in 1963.

The art exhibition featured more than 100 oil paintings and sketches produced by Wu in a span of six decades.

Exhibited artistic productions reflect the landscapes and daily lives of people living in Shaanxi, whilst also saluting his teaching endeavors.

During the exhibition, Wu made a donation of Xintianyou, his most representative piece and also his graduation work in 1954, and 23 other artistic works to the National Art Museum of China.

In Xintianyou, Wu depicted several peasants riding donkeys along the rugged and narrow paths of the Loess Plateau in northwestern regions of Shaanxi. The title comes from a folk singing style, with emotional and resounding tunes that resonate with the extensive plateau, which is very popular in the province.

The exhibition is scheduled to be wrapped up on May 21.
