THE LIU JING XIU TANG COLLECTION OF CHINESE PAINTINGS

The Liu Jing Xiu Tang Collection of Chinese Paintings was formed by Mr. Liu Kuo Chun (1887-1978). A native of Jiangsu, Mr. Liu had business in the textile and dyeing industry, and was a generous philanthropist with a passion for Chinese arts and culture, especially Chinese paintings and calligraphy. The name of the collection Jing Xiu Tang was derived from the Chinese saying Jingye Xiushen; committed to one's work and improving oneself, which was Mr. Liu's lifelong motto. The descendants of Mr. Liu are also passionate about Chinese paintings and public duties and hence, a portion of the Liu Jing Xiu Tang Collection was donated to the Nanjing Municipal Museum as well as the Changzhou Museum, a city he spent most of his life in.

Apart from these six modern Chinese paintings and calligraphy, another six classical works from the same collection will be offered in our Fine Chinese Classical Paintings and Calligraphy sale to be held on 27 May 2013 (Lot number 741-746). Of a special note, a rare and important handscroll in silk, River Scenery by the Ming master Zhou Chen (Lot number 741) is definitely a breathtaking piece not to be missed.
