Qi Baishi and Shi Lu are masters of Chinese painting in the twentieth century. While continuing the traditions of Chinese painting, they searched for new directions of Chinese art and produced works of art that evoke amazement to this day.

The exhibition features over 40 items of works by Qi and Shi, selected from two Hong Kong private collections, Debonair Villa and Yitao Collection. Drawing a comparison between the two masters, this exhibition explores their artistic development and the processes in which they innovated the traditional Chinese art.
