Written and compiled by Dr. Peggy Pik-ki Ho of the Art Museum of CUHK, this publication is a journey of retrospection and reconstruction of Guangdong painting and calligraphy from CUHK’s collection with in-depth and original research. It leads the readers to delve into the mindset of Guangdong cultural elites in relation to arts, culture, and history. On the occasion of celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Art Museum, we hereby commemorate the unparalleled efforts and enthusiasm of these pioneers in their quest for applying their learned knowledge of statecraft to practical affairs and contributing to the nation’s intellectual legacy. The catalogue consists of five chapters: “Introduction,” “Subtlety and Silence have Merits,” “The Reluctant Choice of Shunning from the World,” “The Century of Arts and Culture,” and “The Sweeping Wing and the Elegant Bamboo,” with about 130 paintings, calligraphic works and objects. 

Prof. Ho Chuan-hsing wrote the title of the catalogue. Conservation of exhibits was carried out by Master Xie Guanghan, Leung Kai-hin, Yeung Mung-chuk, and Woo Tsz-ming. The exhibits were photographed by Tang Ming-leung and the exquisite catalogue was meticulously designed by Lo Kwan-chi.
