A Glimpse of TSUI's Collection

2/F T.T. Tsui Gallery of Chinese Art

Co-operating with The Tsui Art Foundation, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum has selected outstanding items from the Foundation's collection to share the late Dr T. T. Tsui's interests and tastes for public appreciation. The exhibition features a painting album by Huang Yongyu and seven ceramics depicted in the album. Other fine works of the applied arts are also on display. Foremost among them are two complete sets of porcelain month cups made in the imperial kiln in Jingdezhen during the reign of Emperor Kangxi. Each set consists of twelve cups made of eggshell porcelain, each cup painted with a flower of the month and accompanied by a poem. Other exhibits include jade carvings and accessories, some of which were kept by Dr Tsui in his office as personal favourites. Also featured are textile panels and wooden objects with semi-precious stones inlay. The Museum also features from its collection items of jade and gold to complement the display.
