Jiangsu Art Gallery

Jiangsu Art Gallery, usually known as Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum (Chinese: 江苏省美术馆), is a museum in Nanjing, in Jiangsu province in China. It was founded in 1936, during the Nanjing decade, as China’s first state level museum. In 1960, it was formally renamed as the Jiangsu Provincial Art Museum. In 2010 it re-opened in a new 27,449 square metres (295,460 sq ft) building designed by the German architect studio KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten.[1]

The museum hosts the Nanjing biennale.[2][3]

The gallery is the largest in the Jiangsu Province,[citation needed] presenting traditional and contemporary art pieces of China.
