The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a guided viewing of A Taste of the Masters–An Exhibition of Paintings from the MK Lau Collection with the Collection’s curator, Catherine Maudsley.

Featuring more than 30 paintings, including Zhang Daqian’s (1899–1983) four-panel Flowers and Trees of the Four Seasons, as well as Qi Baishi’s (1864–1957), Wang Zhen’s (1867–1938), and Pu Ru’s (1896–1963) large-format masterpieces, each a rare tour de force by the respective great artists. Also featured in the exhibition are outstanding works by Lin Fengmian (1900–1991) and Wu Guanzhong (1919–2010), reflecting their own unique creative approaches to the integration of Chinese and Western traditions. Also featured are paintings by representative figures of the Lingnan School covering a broad range of subjects from landscape and flowers to plants and figures, as well as displaying the many artistic styles adopted by these pioneering artists at the crossroads of East and West. Although the current exhibition only represents a very small proportion of the M K Lau Collection, each work is stunning and unique.

Catherine Maudsley is an art historian, art advisor, curator, educator and writer. Her interdisciplinary practice brings together strategic thinking, sound methodologies and a broad vision, honed by decades of hands-on-experience.  Catherine serves as the senior advisor and curator to distinguished private art collections such as the M K Lau Collection in Hong Kong and to others worldwide.  Recently, she curated the critically-acclaimed exhibitions Irene Chou Rediscovered: Paintings from the M K Lau Collection in Hong Kong and The Journey – Wesley Tongson at the Chinese Culture Foundation, San Francisco.
