西溪老翁The William Rockhill Nelson Art Museum is located in Kansas City, Missouri. The museum broke ground in 1930 and opened for the first time in 1933. It is one of the largest art museums in the Midwest. Since it was in the Great Depression at that time, a large number of low-price dumped precious artworks emerged in the global art market, and there were few buyers. Therefore, the museum acquired a large number of artworks in a short period of time, laying a foundation for Status in art museums.
The collections of the Nelson Museum of Art are mainly divided into Asian, European paintings, American paintings and others. Among them, the Asian Department mainly collects and displays artworks from China, Japan, South Korea, India, Iran and Southeast Asian countries. Its heavyweight Chinese paintings mainly include Dong Qichang's "Antique Landscape Album" and Li Cheng's "Qingluan Xiaosi Picture" , Ma Yuan’s "Xiyuan Elegant Collection Picture", Shi Tao’s "Liu Shishishan Water Album", Xu Daoning’s "Autumn River Fishing Boat Picture (Fishing Boat Singing Night Picture)", Zhao Ji (Song Huizong)’s "Four Bird Picture", etc. European paintings mainly include works by Caravaggio, Greco, Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and others.
