Farmers' paintings are a window for the world to understand China's rural areas. Kabba Ifama Senkou, a diplomat from the Republic of Guinea, said: "I learned that the paintings in the museum are all created by farmers, which is truly remarkable. Farmers' paintings express love and hard-work and are inseparable from the farmers' lives. At the same time, they showcase another aspect of rural life.
