Description

The Xiu Hai Lou Collection is the largest and most established private collection of Chinese painting and calligraphy in Singapore today. Founded by the late Mr Yeo Khee Lim, it encompasses a rich variety of styles and genres, including works from different regional schools and esteemed masters.

Drawing on close to 100 works from the Collection, this exhibition offers visitors a rare insight into the evolution of modern Chinese painting from tradition to modernity.

Two complementary shows featuring artists renowned for their innovative approaches to modern Chinese painting are running in tandem with this exhibition—Wu Guanzhong: A Walk through Nature and Strokes of Life: The Art of Chen Chong Swee. Chen Chong Swee was the artistic advisor to Yeo Khee Lim and even coined the name “Xiu Hai Lou”.
