In 1991, Dr. T.T. Tsui invited his friend, famous artist Huang Yongyu to visit his first private Museum “The Tsui Museum” in Hong Kong and gifted Huang a copy of the collection catalogue as souvenir. While the artist opened the catalogue, he was captivated by nine lively antique potteries with a sense of humour among the many treasures. They inspired him to create an album for them as a return of the friendship with Dr. Tsui.
Friendship between the two men was sealed. The name of this album “A Glimpse of Tsui’s Collection” is a metonymy of the extensive collection of Dr. Tsui, reflecting only a small group of his marvellous amount of treasures.
The exhibition displays the album and seven precious funerary potteries from the Han and Tang dynasties. They reflect the prevailing social custom and life, such as lavish ceremonial burial. Through the album, we can see the interaction between paintings and artefacts, and the sincere friendship between the collector and the artist.
