LONDON， Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- A rare painting of the lost palace of King Henry VIII went on public display for the first time on Saturday after being saved for the nation.
London's Victoria and Albert Museum has rescued a painting of King Henry's famous Nonsuch Palace in Cheam， Surrey after being bought for a million pounds (1.26 million U.S. dollars) to stop it going overseas.
A temporary export bar had been placed on the painting by the Department for Culture， Media and Sport by Flemish artist Joris Hoefnagel， said to be the earliest depiction of the king's palace in Surrey.
The V&A announced it had raised the money to save the 1568 painting with the help of the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) and the Art Fund.
Sir Peter Luff， chairman of the NHMF， said: "We felt it essential that this rare and beautifully detailed artwork， documenting one of our most important lost palaces， stay in the UK for us all to enjoy."
Nonsuch Palace was dismantled about 150 years after it was built， earning its title as the "lost palace".
Senior curator at the V&A Mark Evans， described the painting as a "a beautiful work of outstanding importance".
"Among the earliest surviving English landscape watercolours， it brings to life one of the greatest monuments of the English Renaissance， now lost to us，" Evans said.
The museum describes the painting as the most faithful of only six surviving depictions of the lost palace.
It has joined the national collection of British miniatures and watercolours at the V&A and has now gone on display in the Museum's British Galleries.

BEIJING, Oct.11 (Xinhua) -- Dressed in the style of the Han Dynasty that ruled China 1,800 years ago Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Plus KPU TPU Men's White Black
, 6-year-old Chen Quanjin is chanting ancient Chinese classics with several other children about the same age as their heads sway from side to side.
Instead of taking piano lessons or attending English learning courses, Chen spent his weekend doing traditional Chinese studies at the Chengxian Guoxue Institute in Guozijian, China's highest education institute from the 13th to 19th centuries.
Chen has mastered the Dizigui Cheap Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Men's Grey Silver
, a Chinese book dating back more than 300 years that lays out standards for being a good child and student. He says the three-character verses are understandable and trip off the tongue.
"Older siblings should befriend younger ones; younger siblings should respect and love older ones. Siblings who keep harmonious relationships among themselves are being dutiful to their parents," Chen quotes from the work.
With students aged mostly from 4 to 10, the Chengxian Guoxue Institute aims to expand children's exposure to traditional culture through introductions to Confucianism Cheap Women's Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Shoes Grey Pink
, Chinese calligraphy and other traditional values, says director Ji Jiejing.
"Traditional Chinese culture should not lose its grip on young Chinese as it is good for their moral development and the cultivation of their character. Some wisdom delivered through the Chinese classics might help children deal with the challenges in their own lives," Ji says.
"As a kind of enlightenment Cheap Men's Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Shoes Grey Green
, I think traditional Chinese learning can start at an early age, say around 4, so the philosophy will be deeply rooted in their hearts."
The popularity of the Chengxian Guoxue Institute reflects a resurgence of interest in traditional culture. In recent years Cheap Men's Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Shoes Blue
, Chinese students' English learning craze has, to some extent, led to the neglect of their mother tongue Cheap Men's Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Shoes White
, especially China's traditional cultural legacy. So there has been a pressing call for a school system that attaches enough importance to the learning of traditional culture.
Beijing's Tongzhou district is a pioneer in teaching traditional culture. More than 50 primary and middle schools there have compulsory Chinese language lessons and one period a week focusing on cultural traditions. They are working with experimental textbooks for the lessons, which began in 200. http://www.wholesalenbajerseysforcheap.com/ Wholesale Jerseys Online Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale College Basketball Jerseys Cheap New NBA Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Throwback Jerseys Cheap Kids Jerseys
