LUI SHOU-KWAN CENTENARY EXHIBITION

LUI SHOU-KWAN CENTENARY EXHIBITION

Lui Shou-kwan (1919–1975) was one of the most significant artists in Hong Kong during the mid-twentieth century. The paintings in this exhibition marking the anniversary of his birth are from the Ashmolean’s own collection.

Two themes in particular dominate the output of the painter Lui Shou-kwan: landscapes and spirituality. It is his Chan (Japanese: “Zen”) paintings for which he became most famous. During the 1960s and 1970s these caught the imagination of many, as examples of an authentic contemporary Hong Kong art that could compete on equal terms with that of artists abroad.
