Photo taken on May 18, 2011, shows the scene of a news briefing on the delivery of "The Leftover Mountain Painting", the smaller half of a 660-year-old landscape painting "Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains" by famed Chinese painter Huang Gongwang, in Beijing, capital of China. The antique painting "Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains" was accidentally split into two some 300 years ago. The smaller half has been stored in the Zhejiang Provincial Museum, while the larger half in the Taipei Palace Museum since 1949. On Wednesday, the smaller one was handed over in Beijing to the Taipei Palace Museum for a reunion exhibition co-hosted by the two museums in Taipei from June 1 to September 25. (Xinhua)
