The delegation first appreciated the collection. Masterworks from ancient Chinese painters Qiu Ying, Wang Yuanqi and Dong Qichang to modern masters Qi Baishi and Zhang Daqian, and then to Western masters such as Picasso, Monet and Renoir, Yan Lugen gave detailed explanations for visitors. As a senior collector, Yan Lu pays close attention to the art market and contemporary art development. Since its establishment in 2013, Baijia Lake Group has invested nearly one billion yuan in holding many influential exhibitions, such as Homage to Masters, Nanjing International Art Festival, Art Nanjing, Jiangsu Art Biennale Expo and Special Exhibition of the 20th Anniversary of the HKSAR. The group has also established Baijia Lake Museum, which has been open to the public for free, hoping to make the public pay more attention to traditional culture and contemporary art, and achieve a certain aesthetic education function. Both of them are looking forward to further exchanges and cooperation in the future.
