香港大學美術博物館 UMAG HKU 呈獻的《鑑古賞今——二十世紀中國的水墨與藝術發展》集合來自香港、中國內地及海外的二十世紀中國藝術家，香港大學美術博物館與數十位畫家因中國畫結緣，當中不少館藏由畫家或其子孫贈予，成為永久館藏，展品歷史橫跨整個二十世紀。是次展覽特意向公眾展示一些很少公開展示甚至很未曝光的珍藏畫品。
The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) honourably presents the Chinese painting exhibition “Tradition to Contemporary: Ink Painting and Artistic Development in 20th-century China”, featuring the influential and well-known ink painting master from Hong Kong, Mainland and abroad. The featured masters do not only have helped to build the Hong Kong art scene, but also have contributed to the foundation of UMAG. Most permanent collections were the gifts from the artists or their descendants, witnessing the development of UMAG. The history of featured artwork span across the 20th century, some of which are seldom or never publicly exhibited.
All in all, the chronological arrangements of the paintings offer the audience a glimpse of the Chines ink painting development in the 20th century, introducing the significant masters and the transition of their styles. The themes of the ink paintings cover from Old Hong Kong landscape, flower-bird and mountain paintings. The largest exhibit is “Mount Huang at Dawn” created by Liu Hai-su, which was made after Liu climbed the Mountain Huang for the ninth time at the age of eighty-seven. His works emphasize the observation on nature and demonstrate his unique blending of Western and Chinese techniques on ink.
