    The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is one of the most famous art museums in the United States, located in Kansas City, Missouri. The museum broke ground in 1930 and first opened its doors to the public in 1933. As it was in the period of the Great Depression, the global art market was flooded with a large number of low-priced dumping of valuable works of art, and few acquirers, the museum therefore acquired a large number of works of art in a very short period of time, laying down the status in the art museum.

    The Nelson Museum of Art is known for its collection of exquisite ancient Chinese art, especially Chinese paintings and calligraphy. Much of this art was acquired in the 1930s through the travels of Harvard graduate student Laurence Sickman in China. He was appointed director of the Nelson Museum of Art in 1953 and served for 25 years.

    The Nelson Museum of Art's collection is divided into the Asian Division, European Paintings, American Paintings, and Others. Among them, the Asian Department mainly collects and displays works of art from China, Japan, Korea, India, Iran and Southeast Asian countries, and its heavyweight Chinese paintings mainly include Dong Qichang's "Imitation of Ancient Landscape Albums", Li Cheng's "Clear Ranges and Xiaosi Temple Picture", Ma Yuan's "West Garden Elegant Gathering Picture" and "The West Garden Elegant Gathering Picture". "Western Garden", Shi Tao's "Landscape Album for Liu Shi", Xu Daoning's "Autumn River Fishing Boat", Zhao Ji's (Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty) "Four Birds" by Zhao Ji (Emperor Huizong of Song Dynasty). European paintings, on the other hand, mainly include works by Caravaggio, Grecaud, Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and others.
