The Four Seasons


Nature has a wonderful rhythm; the seasons come and go along with their changing scenes. Professor Chao Shao-an immersed himself in nature’s inspiration. With nature as his teacher, he observed the natural world meticulously, with a unique vision to discover the ultimate beauty. His drawing skills created flowers in full bloom, dazzling in their brilliance. His favourite noble cicadas sing in the summer willows, with red lychee in abundance, the fruit of the season. Depicting a rich autumn harvest, he painted fisherman along the reed shore. He admired the plum blossoms in moonlight and enjoyed the serenity of dreamlike winter snow.

Professor Chao realised that a harmonious life could be found in the seasonal changes and in his feelings of coexistence with nature, exemplified in his words, “I only wish I could be at leisure.” This exhibition features a selection of around 40 paintings with the four seasons the theme.
