Don't miss the Victoria and Albert Museum's major exhibition of Chinese paintings, which brings together rare works from around the world.
There will be more than 70 items on show, including some of the earliest surviving Chinese paintings, intimate works by monks, and a 14 metre (46ft) long scroll painting.
You'll see paintings in the form of banners, screens, fans and scrolls, created for a wide variety of settings, from tombs and temples to palaces and private homes.
The display also features materials and equipment discovered in artists' studios, which reveal the technical processes and traditional techniques used to create the paintings.
Martin Roth, director of the V&A, said, "The V&A has been collecting and exhibiting Chinese art since the museum was founded. It is an honour to present this once-in-a-lifetime experience of seeing the greatest examples of Chinese painting together and understanding how they were created."
