My Favourites

Here are some of my favourite paintings.

The Met has many fabulous paintings.  I love especially Zhao Mengjian’s delicate bai miao Narcissus handscroll, and the exquisite dan cai  Pleasures of Fishes handscroll by Zhou Dongqing.

In Shanghai Museum I was delighted by a handscroll of orchids by Zheng Xie (Zheng Banqiao) – I love his bamboo paintings as well.  Here is just a glimpse from my photos:

I was very fortunate to see Bada Shanren’s Flowers on the River at the V&A’s exhibition of Chinese masterpieces.
