趙少昂 草書 水墨紙本 鏡框 一九四九年作
題識：三十八年 (1949年) 春月為指南先生雅屬，香島旅次少昂寫漁洋山人句。
何指南 (1908-1953) 為廣東順德人。早年於香港皇后 大道中從事顏料批發。當時地下為寫字樓及陳列室，二樓及三樓則是起居室、書房及休憩室。何氏嗜好收藏中國書畫，常與志同道合的朋友於休憩室聚會，以研究書畫為樂。據其後人憶述，何氏最愛在自己書房內，將書畫掛滿四面牆壁，漫步細賞每件作品，從其專注又帶滿足感的表情，相信這或許是他一天中最快樂的時刻。
The Collection of Mr. Ho Chinam
A wholesale supplier of dyes, Mr. Ho Chinam (1908-1953)was an avid connoisseur of the arts and resided on Queens Road Central above his shop. He enjoyed gathering friends together to discuss topics that revolved around art and culture. Later friends recalled that Ho loved most of all to immerse himself in his study and examine his paintings and other objects, gaining much satisfaction in the process.
This selection of Mr. Hos paintings encompasses both classical and modern works, purchased between the 30s and 50s. It includes the works of prominent Lingnan artists Gao Jianfu, Gao Qifeng and Chen Shuren. Ho had close links with the artists in Hong Kong due to his close proximity and passionate interest, and he often invited artists and connoisseurs to get together for gatherings.
Zhang Daqians Young Lady from Bhutan, created in 1950 when he was in India, and Zhao Shaoangs Flower and Birds and Calligraphy in Cursive Script are dedicated to Mr. Ho, with Cats and Magpies by Xu Beihong, are among Mr. Hos prized possessions, which are currently being offered for the first time. This collection was treasured and kept by Mr. Hos family members for nearly sixty years after he passed away at the young age of 45.
