An exhibition featuring female calligrapher Xiao Xian's works will be held at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing from July 27 to August 6.

Born in 1902, Xiao learned calligraphy from the noted 20th century Chinese scholar Kang Youwei. Praised as a treasure of contemporary Chinese calligraphy, her style is natural and unrestrained, with an air of elegance and freedom.

After Xiao’s death in 1997, her family donated many of her works to the museum.

This year marks the 115th anniversary of the artist’s birth. The museum wants to remember the calligrapher and promote traditional Chinese culture via the exhibit.
