The Connoisseurship and Collection of the Master of Chih Lo Lou

Overview

For the literati in ancient China, collecting painting and calligraphy is an elegant pursuit that speaks to the impermanent nature of antiquities. Knowledge of connoisseurship is crucial to the collecting of Chinese painting and calligraphy. Immersing oneself in painting and calligraphy helps nourish a noble mind and a forgiving heart. The virtues and character of the ancient painters and calligraphers can be kept alive in their works so much so that they can spread teachings and reinforce social relationships.

Featuring 30 sets of works from the Chih Lo Lou Collection, the exhibition gives an insight into the anecdotes of Ho Iu-kwong, the Master of Chih Lo Lou's encounter with art as well as his concepts of collection building in tribute to his contribution to Chinese culture and his lofty sentiments. The establishment history of the Chih Lo Lou Collection not only reveals the development of collecting in Hong Kong, but also the crucial role the city played in preserving traditional Chinese culture.
