This lavish volume offers a stunning tour through one of the most valuable art donations ever presented to Singapore.
Wu Guanzhong (1919–2010) who had gone further than any of his contemporaries in fusing the Western and Chinese art traditions, stands as one of the greatest artists of 20th-century China. A prolific artist and essayist, Wu was one of the few Chinese artists to have established a reputation both in Asia and the West. In 2008, Wu surprised many when he made a generous donation of 113 works to Singapore. It remains the single largest donation made by the Chinese master artist to any public museum. This volume featuring essays, over 100 artwork images and a detailed biographical timeline, celebrates Wu’s art and life, as well as his remarkable achievements and donation to Singapore.
