Ink Painting and Artistic Development in 20th-century China

September 3, 2018

The University Museum and Art Gallery opens a window into their permanent collection in its latest exhibition of 20th-century Chinese paintings. From masters of the classic genres of landscape and bird-and-flower paintings to luminaries of Hong Kong's New Ink movement, the exhibition draws strength from its anthological approach by bringing together representative works by over 50 artists whose personal histories connect them to Hong Kong and whose creative contribute to the evolution of ink painting and artistic development in this city. 

 

Director of the museum, Dr. Florian Knothe, comments in a foreword to the exhibition:

"UMAG's exhibition makes reference to individuals and their networks, to teacher-student relationships and to the generosity of the numerous painters who have helped to grow the museum's holdings and whose work constitutes the foundation of the institution's educational work today. Since initiating their publicly accessible collection in the 1950s, UMAG has been closely connected to the development of these painters and their work, and has actively documented the evolution of their artistic talents and the Hong Kong art scene."
