New Donation

We have received a generous donation of four paintings by Professor Chao Shao-an from Jin Shan Tang. The four paintings are creations from the late 1960s to the late 1980s on the theme of flowers combined with birds, insects or small animals, subjects which Chao excelled in painting. They are titled "Squirrel and Grapes", "Fontanesia and Butterfly", "Mantis and Chinese Trumpet Creeper", and "Wisteria and Birds".

This donation is a valuable addition to the museum collection. The paintings are an important new reference for research on the works of Chao Shao-an and art of the Lingnan School.
