The exhibition in Beijing includes a portrait of Chinese pulmonologist Zhong Nanshan entitled "Chinese communist - Zhang Nanshan" (right) by artist Feng Zhaoxie. The exhibition, which opened on Aug 1 for two months, only allows visitors with Chinese identity cards, and so is not accessible to foreigners.
CHINESE workers raise their fists beside a red communist flag in a painting displayed at a Beijing museum, one of nearly 200 works put together for a propaganda exhibition that hails, not the Maoist past, but the "heroic deeds" of frontline medics fighting the coronavirus.
