Professor Chao Shao-an is a renowned master of the Lingnan school of Painting. His work has important influence in Hong Kong, and also placed the Lingnan School in a significant role in the development of Chinese art. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Guangzhou Museum if Art jointly organise this travelling exhibition in 2015 to commemorate the 110th birthday of the artist in order to review Chao's lifetime artistic achievements.

Selected exhibits date from 1930s to 1990s, covering subjects of birds-and-flowers, landscapes, insects, animals, foggers and calligraphy. Other exhibits include sketches and poem manuscripts by the artist, a comprehensive display of artistic style and development. Interactive programmes are set up and precious video slipping of the artist in demonstrations are shown to increase audience interest.
