Dr. Phil Chan
1 September 2018
Dr. Chan Kwun Nam, Phil led members through a guided exhibition viewing of Sincere Brush: Works of Ting Yin-yung Courtesy of His Students and Friends in the Department of Fine Arts, CUHK. Attendees were present with highlights from the seventy-four works donated by Ting Yin-yung’s (Ding Yanyong) former students and friends at the Department of Fine Arts, that were composed between 1962 and 1978, and spanning the sixteen years when Ting was a faculty member at the Department.
This special event featured a much-anticipated return of the Qianlong-era Pictures of Tilling and Weaving (Geng zhi tu 耕織圖) that are currently in the Huaihai Tang 懷海堂 Collection of Hong Kong. Through the generosity of their owner, rare imperial rubbings of the Pictures of Tilling and Weaving were displayed for viewing after a lecture by Dr. Roslyn Hammers of the University of Hong Kong.
