WANG ZIWU (BORN 1936)
FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTIONThis collection began with the establishment of the L Gallery in Hong Kong in the early 1980s. This gallery sold the paintings of many contemporary artists of the day and provided the owners with opportunities to meet many of them. At the end of the decade, the gallery was closed and the owner of these paintings moved to the United States. As in classical times, he enjoyed his collection of paintings and calligraphy in his leisure time away from his medical career.
