Hong Kong Heritage Museum
1 Man Lam Road, Sha Tin,
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
May 21, 2017 To Jul 31, 2017
Detail: Co-operating with The Tsui Art Foundation, the Heritage Museum has selected outstanding items from the Foundation's collection to share the late Dr T. T. Tsui's interests and tastes for public appreciation. Phase one features a painting album by Huang Yongyu and seven ceramics depicted in the album.
Phase two will open in May, featuring fine works of the applied arts. Foremost among them are two complete sets of porcelain Month Cups made in the imperial kiln for Emperor Kangxi. Each set consists of twelve cups made of eggshell porcelain, each cup painted with a flower of the month and accompanied by a poem. Other exhibits include jade carvings and accessories, some of which were kept by Dr Tsui in his office as personal favourites. Also featured are wood objects inlaid with mother-of-pearl and precious stones, and textile panels. The Heritage Museum also features from the museum collection items of jade and gold to complement the display.
