How do artists see the world? Artists, both from home and abroad, present their views, especially through paintings, in an art show that opened on Saturday in Beijing.

The exhibition, Paint One Another and Know One Another, has about 200 works - oil paintings, water colors, sculptures and prints - which capture scenes from 60 nations.

The works by Chinese artists focus on countries along the ancient Silk Road.

The exhibition also features works on China as seen by foreign artists and pieces painted by Chinese artists sent to paint in a studio in Paris.

The works at the show are the products of a project of the China Artists Association, which for the past eight years sponsored Chinese artists to go abroad to create artworks covering different cultures and backgrounds.

Separately, it also invited foreign artists to China to produce works influenced by Chinese culture.
