About “Eternally Revolving Twin Rocks: Qi Baishi and Shi Lu"

“Eternally Revolving Twin Rocks” is the first thematic exhibition in Hong Kong that features Qi Baishi and Shi Lu together in one show.  It showcases over 40 pieces of painting and calligraphy, most of which are making their first museum debut.  All exhibits are selected from two private collections in Hong Kong, Debonair Villa and Yitao Collection.

The exhibition juxtaposes the two masters with the view of educating the public about the development of Chinese painting in the 20th century. Active in the 20th century, both Qi and Shi developed their unique artistic styles. Qi’s artworks inherit the tradition of Chinese painting yet surpass predecessors in their theme and composition. For Shi Lu, his paintings entail innovative compositions and were rendered with both Chinese and Western techniques as he studied Chinese painting and was exposed to Western art as well. All exhibits in this show have high artistic and historical values, encouraging a better understanding of the two masters and their similarities, differences and achievements in transmitting and innovating Chinese painting.
