BEIJING, Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese political advisor Jia Qinglin on Friday visited a classical art exhibition commemorating the centennial anniversary of the 1911 Xinhai Revolution.

Selected works of He Xiangning, a renowned artist-turned-social activist and political figure, were displayed at the exhibition held at China Art Gallery.

A total of 38 paintings were exhibited along with some historical documents depicting He's important role in Chinese contemporary art history and her prominent contributions to revolution in China.
